Advent Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADVS), a leading provider of software and services for the global investment management industry, today announced that more than 300 Advent employees donated time to help a variety of local non-profit organizations during the Company's second annual 'Advent Gives Back Day' held on August 25, 2010. Organized by employees and in partnership with Hands on Bay Area, 'Advent Gives Back Day' is an extension of Advent Software's commitment to the communities in which its employees live and work.
Participants assisted with indoor and outdoor maintenance projects at locations in San Francisco and the East Bay with various organizations including: Alameda Point Collaborative, San Francisco Boys and Girls Clubs, Playworks, Episcopal Community Services, Dr. Charles Drew College Preparatory Academy and Literacy for Environmental Justice. Advent employees also provided job skills and interview coaching at Jewish Vocational Services and Treasure Island Job Corps and assembled care packages, back-to-school backpacks and educational materials for Ronald McDonald House, La Casa de las Madres, Youth Science Institute and YMCA Urban Services. Additional 'Advent Gives Back Day' activities for Advent employees based in New York and Boston are planned for Fall 2010.
