Milwaukee, Wis. — Microsoft gave about $400,000 worth of software to Lad Lake a non-profit organization working with at-risk youth and their families. Rob Busch, enterprise sales manager for Microsoft in Wisconsin, came to reception last Friday at the non-profit’s Synergy School in Milwaukee for the formal announcement.
Microsoft’s software donation will be used to upgrade Lad Lake’s network and software infrastructure, including the computers and software programs used by staff to communicate with and supervise clients.
