In the Community
Senspex is proud to support the efforts of Meals on Wheels Albuquerque to provide food assistance to those in the community in need, especially during a time when more people than ever are unable to leave their homes. Meals on Wheels gives homebound individuals nutritious meals and a wellness check from a friendly face, providing much needed emotional support as well. There is no age, income, or health requirements to participate in this program, which can give up to eight different dietary options and sliding scale prices based on income. Senspex believes in contributing to the continued physical, mental, and emotional health of the community.
Senspex supports programs that provide relief for those experiencing financial hardship as a result of COVID-19, including the Mortgage Finance Authority’s COVID-19 Housing Cost Assistance Program. This program provides as much as $1,500 per month for up to three months to families and individuals that need assistance with
back rent, mortgage payments, and other housing costs, without expectations of repayment. Senspex believes in their mission and the continued support of our community members.More information about this program and other similar resources can be found here: https://www.cabq.gov/coronavirus-information/community-resources-during-covid
Senspex proudly supports Paws and Stripes, a nonprofit organization that provides service dogs for wounded U.S. military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Paws and Stripes helps veterans to live the full and rich lives they deserve. Veterans are involved in every aspect of the program -- facilitating healing, building self-confidence, increasing their bonds with the dogs, and developing the tools to maintain the dogs’ training long after graduation. The entire program is funded by grants and donations so that each veteran is not obligated to pay for their service dog.
The Paws and Stripes organization saves two lives at a time by utilizing and training only rescued and rehabilitated shelter dogs. Teams work with highly experienced dog trainers to help both the veteran and the dog succeed. These dogs are not pets, they are service dogs with the complete protection and rights granted by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
I/ITSEC 5K WALK/RUN/ROLL
Senspex is honored to sponsor the 5K Walk/Run/Roll at I/ITSEC in Orlando, Florida. Proceeds from the annual I/ITSEC 5K support the Camaraderie Foundation and I/ITSEC STEM Initiative. The Camaraderie Foundation’s mission is to provide healing for invisible wounds of war through counseling, emotional and spiritual support for all branches of Military Service Members, Veterans and their families. The I/ITSEC STEM Initiative strives to raise awareness for the nationwide effort to stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering and math among young people and to promote their enhanced instruction in our schools. Senspex is proud to participate and sponsor this event and the associated charities.
CARRIE TINGLEY HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
Every year, the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation hosts the annual Mud Volleyball Tournament in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation assists families with their medical and daily living needs and also offers long-term assistance, education and programs through funding for research scholarships and quality of life programs such as a summer wheelchair sports camp and scholarships for therapeutic horseback riding and dance lessons.
Senspex annually takes part in the event, and sponsors teams participating in the charity tournament. At Senspex we proudly support the mission of the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation.
Ivan Moreno, a key business development team member for Senspex Inc., completed the 2015 RAGNAR Relay Series Florida Keys race. The race, which took place February 6-7 2015, stretched from Miami to Key West. Ivan ran this 200-mile race on behalf of Senspex, representing the entire company. The
Operation Give Back (OGB) Team was composed of active military servicemen, former military members, Wounded Warriors, Gold Star Family members, and a few civilians. Ivan was invited to run by CSM Jose Garcia-Aponte, the founder of the OGB for Wounded Warriors Program.
The OGB Program’s main objective is to help Gold Star Families, Wounded Warriors, and children that lost parents in combat. The OGB Team ran this race to raise awareness of the program and its worthy cause of helping those brave warriors and families for their great heroic deed and sacrifices that will never be repaid.
RELAY FOR LIFE
For more than 65 years, the American Cancer Society has been finding answers that save lives – from changes in lifestyle to new approaches in therapies to improving cancer patients’ quality-of-life. In fact, no single nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization in the US has invested more to find the causes and cures of cancer.
The 2012 Relay For Life was held in Barstow, California. Senspex’s Ft. Irwin employees helped raise over $118K. We had 22 out of 31 employees participate by assisting with water delivery, traffic control, medical chase vehicle drivers, road blocks, filming and finish line refreshments.
SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESSES
At Senspex, we believe in supporting local businesses. Every quarter of the year, Senspex conducts fun and unique team building exercises to engage our employees and also support our local businesses. Most recently, the Albuquerque office employees went to the New Mexico Escape Room. The team worked together using their individual skill-sets to solve puzzles in a race against the clock. Senspex is proud to be able to support local business and encourage our team's growth.
