In what has become an annual tradition, the 3n1media team spent the afternoon of December 9th volunteering in the Nashville Salvation Army's Angel Tree warehouse. The Angel Tree program pairs donors with less fortunate children and seniors, allowing members of the community to give gifts to those who might not otherwise receive them during the holiday season.
On this Giving Tuesday, we wanted to give a shout out to some of our nonprofit friends. These worthy organizations work to serve people in our community and around the world. So, in the spirit of the season, consider a gift to them today:
We're honored that Raising Boys & Girls will be featuring our own Sean Wright and Jason Hardy as guest bloggers for their weekly Technology Tuesday post for the next three weeks! Raising Boys & Girls is a website and blog full of helpful resources from the work of David Thomas, Melissa Trevathan, and Sissy Goff, counselors who work with kids and families at Daystar Counseling.
On 7/14 from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m., Sean Wright, 3n1's President & CEO, will be giving a workshop titled "Cybersecurity: The Risks and What You Can Do About Them" hosted by the Pathway Women's Business Center. Joining Sean will be Brian Drury, Commercial Producer at Geny Insurance Agency.
