Typically, this news service is about press releases, but with this week’s
tragic events, a number of companies have stepped up with generous offers.
Below are ones that we know of to date.
If you are planning on purchasing items, you may want to direct those
purchases towards the vendors who have generously offered their support.
Once again, please join MacTech in sending our heartfelt sympathies,
thoughts, and prayers to those affected by the horrific acts in New York
and Washington, D.C. Furthermore, we applaud the efforts of the volunteers
and rescuers risking all as we stand together in the face of evil.
