Qubit Networks, a leader in IT networking, security and voice-communication systems, and Surf Air Wireless, a leader in northern Indiana Internet services, will donate more than $15,000 in IT network, phone and Internet services to LaPorte County Family YMCA.

The donation will ensure solid network connectivity between all YMCA branches throughout LaPorte County, and support strong internal and external communication.

The recent addition of the Michigan City YMCA Elston branch created unexpected technical challenges, so the two companies came together to install an Internet-based VoIP phone system, secure wireless Internet connection and the ability to back up information between all five YMCA sites.

Qubit Networks, known for its support of local organizations and charitable contributions, helps customers secure their data over reliable networks. It staffs offices in LaPorte, Highland and Indianapolis.

“We really wanted to support the YMCA’s mission, and we appreciate the resources they provide to our local community,” Qubit Networks CEO Ryan Seaburg said. “We’re making sure that the personal information a user enters at their local YMCA is controlled and safe so that the YMCA can keep doing its great work in Northwest Indiana.”

Surf Air’s president, Gene Crusie, added, “The YMCA provides a valuable and important service to our community, and we are pleased to play a small part in supporting them.”

YMCA Executive Director Laurie Halaska expressed gratitude for the generous donation from Qubit Networks and Surf Air Wireless.

“We were struggling to keep our employees connected in order to better serve our customers,” she said, “and Qubit and Surf Air were able to rectify our network issues and ensure a long-term solution to keep us connected for years to come. The Y is very grateful for their generosity.”
