Cisco Employee Changes Lives Through Technology Donations | 3BL Media

Cisco Employee Changes Lives Through Technology Donations | 3BL Media: "In 2013, Roland Holloway learned he was cancer-free.

With the help of Cisco’s Employee Purchase Donation Program (EPDP), Roland is empowering a local nonprofit with new technologies and helping others in need.

Roland, who will celebrate his 20th anniversary at Cisco later this year, is taking advantage of his newfound health to create change in his own neighborhood. “I’ve had a lot of good fortune come my way,” he said. “I enjoy giving back; I can’t change world politics, but I can definitely help my local community.”"
