Market Technologies Becomes Official Donation Zone for Hurricane Irma Relief Supplies

Wesley Chapel, Fla., September 20th, 2017 – Market Technologies, the company behind the artificial intelligence trading software, VantagePoint, is giving back to the community once again by becoming an official donation zone, collecting hurricane relief supplies for those recovering from Hurricane Irma.

Hurricane Irma did some serious damage across the state of Florida and even though the employees of Market Technologies were lucky to have avoided the most severe effects of the storm, they still came together to help those in need by collecting several items and delivering them to the Pasco County Disaster Relief Intake Center.

The morning after Hurricane Irma left her mark, the company’s Vice President, Lane Mendelsohn made the announcement, “As a company that helps those in need, it is our responsibility to give what we can back to those who are suffering from the damages caused by the hurricane. We will be making Market Technologies an official donation zone for hurricane relief supplies. “

In only 5 days, Market Technologies and its employees collected over 1,300 items including:

14 bars of soap 8 bars of deodorant 4 boxes of tissues 10 pouches baby food 12 cups applesauce
40 toothbrushes 12 bottles of shampoo 40 Ziploc bags 25 cans of soup 8 granola bars
105 loads of laundry 6 bottles of body wash

21 pounds of rice

38 cans of vegetables 2 cans of oatmeal
28 rolls of toilet paper 2 boxes of feminine products 3 pounds of dry beans 12 cans of fruit 36 packs fruit snacks
12 rolls of paper towels 214 baby diapers 9 jars of peanut butter 8 cans ravioli 5 boxes of crackers
13 tubes of toothpaste 2 packs of baby wipes 2 jars of jelly 1 can of tuna 1 bag choc chips
2 packs of flushable wipes 2 canisters of Lysol wipes 22 boxes mac & cheese 8 cups of Jell-O 2 cans Pringles
1 can of peanuts 56 juice boxes 368 cups of tea 64 cups coffee 3 bottles fruit juice
3 gallons of water 264 bottles of water 1 pack paper plates 1 pack plastic cups 10 travel care


Helping those in need is not an unfamiliar task for the family owned company. In fact, it has only been a couple of weeks since Market Technologies contributed a large financial donation to the United Way Relief Fund, which helped to provide any storm-related needs and recovery resources to those who suffered from the wrath of Hurricane Harvey that hit Houston just this past August.

When their own community was then hit head on by a destructive storm, Hurricane Irma, they didn’t even think twice about jumping in to help. CEO Louis Mendelsohn said, “Our company has called Florida home for the last 38 years and we have many customers in this state. It is our duty and mission to show our customers that our relationship with them is a life-long one, and we care about them and their success far beyond just their success as traders.”

The Mendelsohn family and Market Technologies have donated over $592,000 to local and national non-profit organizations since 2007. This is one of the many reasons why their employees are so proud to be a part of this organization, one that will continue to give back to the community wherever they can.
