Faith Technologies Donates Network Update to Stimulate Nonprofit’s Communications
Electrical Contractor to Provide $20,000 in Labor and Materials for Cerebral Palsy, Inc. Following Telethon
Green Bay, Wis. (March 13, 2009) – On Monday, March 9, following the 55th Annual Cerebral Palsy Telethon, the CP Center’s network and infrastructure will receive an update, free-of-charge.
Faith Technologies, Inc., a full-service electrical and specialty systems contractor with more than 85 employees in Green Bay, will deliver and install 20,000 feet of cable wiring to help the nonprofit’s employees work more efficiently by providing quicker and more reliable communications access through its computers and telephone systems.
The donation and services on behalf of the employee-owned organization – $20,000 in labor and materials, the work of a specialty systems technician and apprentice, and network electronics – are scheduled to be completed by Monday, March 30 at the CP Center at 2801 S. Webster Ave. in Green Bay.
The CP Center provides services for people affected by temporary or permanent physical, sensory, and speech needs or conditions in Northeast Wisconsin.
“Since coming to the CP Center, I have come to fully appreciate the power of friend helping friend, neighbor helping neighbor, and this gift from Faith Technologies is a wonderful example of that type of help,” says Claire Williams, Business Operations Assistant at the CP Center. “Faith Technologies gift has a direct impact on the CP Center’s ability to continue to serve and help those coming through our doors.”
An electrical and specialty systems contractor with a division office in Green Bay, Faith Technologies uses reserved funds to help nonprofit’s with labor and/or materials through its Continuous Employment Fund (CEF). The program allows Faith Technologies employees to continue working and provide community organizations with service work despite inadequate funding.
“When we came to our sponsorship agreement for the Telethon, and meeting with the CP Center, we recognized the organization needed a major network update,” says Frank Thiel, Green Bay Division Manager for Faith Technologies. “Providing pro-bono services to local nonprofit organizations allows us to keep our employees working and limit seasonal layoffs, while giving back to the communities we live and work in.”
In addition, Faith Technologies is currently donating $9,000 in labor and materials to assist with a remodeling project at the United Way of Brown County facilities. Work began in early February and is scheduled to be completed by the end of March.
With more than 1,400 employees across the United States, Faith Technologies is an active corporate citizen in the communities it serves. Throughout Wisconsin in 2008, Faith Technologies donated more than $57,000 of CEF funds on 124 projects, of which more than $37,000 was used on labor. Over 1,715 hours were dedicated to nonprofit

Previous CEF-funded work in the Fox Cities has included Habitat for Humanity, Neenah Animal Shelter, Polar Plunge for Special Olympics and Rawhide Boys Ranch. Faith Technologies provides additional services offerings not typically found through a traditional electrical contractor, such as the CEF program, telephone systems, security systems and IT infrastructure.
Recognized for its quality workforce and maintaining end-to-end job control, Faith Technologies has worked on several multi-million dollar projects with many local businesses, including work at Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District, Green Bay Correctional Facility and Austin Straubel International Airport.
As a privately-held merit shop with 16 locations in the United States, Faith Technologies earns the confidence of customers through its high-quality workforce, competitive pricing and the ability to maintain end-to-end job control.
In January 2009, Faith Technologies completed the final phase of a nationwide transition by converting all 10 of its Town & Country Electric locations in Wisconsin to one name – Faith Technologies. Prior to the transition, each division was operating under its own names in different markets.
