We want to thank all of our fantastic sponsors especially our two schools, St. Agnes Academy & Strake Jesuit College Prep.
One of our most critical sponsors for the past several years has been Solarcraft Inc. They have been providing laser cut and bent sheet metal for all of our past 3 robots. Last week our team was welcomed to their facility to tour their shop and learn about their operations. We even got to watch a part be cut by the laser and then operate the press brake.
Volunteer Hours and Contributions
Do you work for a company that grants money to organizations in which you volunteer your time?
In the past, Spectrum has been fortunate to receive some grants due to company employees, spouses, and children working at Spectrum-hosted events like our Texas Robotics Invitational and First Lego League Tournaments.
We know that ExxonMobil awards two types of volunteer grants. One is for a five-person team of employees, spouses, and dependents who volunteer a collective 20 hours at a specific Spectrum event. The other is when an employee, spouse, or dependent (only one person) volunteers 20 hours over a period of time. If you, a Spectrum team member’s parent are an employee of ExxonMobil, please let us know.
We would appreciate if you could see if your employer also awards these types of volunteer grants. If so, please also email us so we can create a master list of potential volunteer grant possibilities.
