U.S. Bank Equipment Finance — Office Equipment Vendor Service has partnered with dealers in the document imaging industry to donate $15,000 to Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon. The donation came as part of The Cannata Report's 2015 Awards & Charities Dinner, at which industry leaders gathered to celebrate the past year and join together in giving back to nonprofits.
Fair Lawn, New Jersey-based Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon was among the event's nonprofit beneficiaries this year, as industry executives contributed $7,500 which U.S. Bank matched to bring the total to $15,000.

"The Cannata Report Annual Awards & Charities Dinner has become a much-anticipated event for industry leaders to meet and support worthy causes," said Phil Buysse, general manager, U.S. Bank Equipment Finance, Office Equipment Vendor Services. "At U.S. Bank, we're proud to support veterans as an employer and by partnering with nonprofits like Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon."
