Philip’s belief that all people should have the opportunity to reach their potential, inspired him to co-found Corporations For Community Connections in 2010. Philip retired as IT Purchasing Manager for Siemens Canada, to devote more time to CFCC’s mission. Currently residing with his wife Lori, in Kingsville Canada, he has witnessed the impact of over 3000 refurbished computers, donated by CFCC's corporate partners. Philip envisions the day when access to technology will no longer be an obstacle, rather a medium to realize the full potential of all humanity. In the words of Oliver Wendell Holmes, "Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions."
