Computers for Kids in Need

Siena was proud to partner with several public schools in Stamford,
CT, where we are based, to give computers to students in need. In
all, we donated more than 20 laptops that were out of circulation. It
was truly gratifying to read the many thank-you letters we received
from the schools, explaining how the computers would be

“Thank you for the generous donation of seven computers,
they will be reformatted to be used by young scholars.”

Volunteer Day 2018

Our first company-wide volunteer day was devoted to DOMUS, a
nonprofit organization in Stamford, CT, where Siena is
headquartered. DOMUS serves more than 1,100 at-risk and
underprivileged youth in the city, providing programs to help
them live healthy and fulfilling lives, both now and into adulthood.

The Siena team was honored and humbled at the opportunity to
spend an afternoon with children in grades 3-8, playing kickball,
dodgeball, basketball and other games. We also enjoyed talking
to the children about their interests, career paths and life in

DOMUS is Latin for “home.” The organization’s slogan is “Love
Lives Here,” and we could truly feel that sentiment during our
short time there. The Siena team thanks everyone at DOMUS for
the opportunity to share an afternoon with you.

Alkesh, Yan, and Troy Enjoy a Night at a Knick's Game

During the company-wide DOMUS volunteer day, a few Siena team members were especially moved by Yan Marte, an alumni of DOMUS’ program turned mentor, and his positive influence on the younger attendees. When he spoke passionately to the group about his love for basketball, Steve Fuscaldo, Troy Larsen, and Alkesh Badshah huddled up and decided to take the young man to his first professional basketball game this past February. The group had a blast bonding, talking sports, and enjoying New York City and the Knicks.
