Technocom, a Charlotte-based office technology company, has created the "TechnoMakeover" initiative and will be donating a $50,000, fully customized technology facelift to a local nonprofit organization. And you can have your say as to which nonprofit you believe is most deserving.

Five finalists have been choosing from the process that began over the summer. Voting opened to the public last week and continues until January 15, 2012. Simply visit and vote for one of the following 2011 TechnoMakeover Finalists:
  • Hospitality House of Charlotte provides shelter to out-of-town families while loved ones receive treatment in nearby hospitals. During its history, Hospitality House of Charlotte has sheltered more than 40,000 guests from 49 states and more than 35 countries. 
  • Michael Scott Mater Foundation creates opportunities for budding entrepreneurs and existing small business owners by providing coaching, mentoring, technical assistance and microfinance. 
  • Crisis Assistance Ministry is the financial hub for Mecklenburg County to assist clients with their financial needs (rent, utilities, clothing, and furniture), helping them move toward self-sufficiency. 
  • Pennies 4 Hope Project transforms individuals and families through partnership in life skills and leadership development. P4HP contributes to the community through crisis provision of resources in food/nutrition, clothing, and pro-life support services with a goal toward self-sufficiency for marginalized families. 
  • With Open Eyes accelerates the sharing and teaching of the good news of Jesus Christ by providing reliable transportation and supplies to modern day apostles they call “Mobile Messengers” seeking access to the unreached and under-served peoples of the world. 
Get more details about each of the finalists, including a video of a representative from each organization describing the work they do and how winning the technology makeover would help them, by clicking here.

The Charlotte-area nonprofit selected for the TechnoMakeover will be announced on January 20. Technocom will work with the chosen organization to understand their office needs and will then bring in, introduce, and train the chosen nonprofit on an office technology package that will help it thrive. This package could include printers and print management, copiers and multi-function systems, mailing solutions, electronic filing and imaging, IT integration and security, and wide-format printing.
