Infinity named No. 1 small business to work for in Colorado

Infinity has been selected as the No. 1 small business in the 2012 Best Companies to Work for in Colorado. The winners were selected and ranked independent of the Colorado SHRM State Council by ModernThink, a national research and consulting organization.

Infinity’s primary customer is the U.S. government, typically the Department of Defense. Infinity provides engineering and information technology services for use in ground systems, space assets, military intelligence and other areas. Usually, Infinity performs the work as a subcontractor to one of the big four military contractors: Raytheon, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. This year, the firm won its first prime contract directly with the U.S. Air Force — a nine-person project at Schriever Air Force Base.

Operation Homefront collecting school supplies for military children

Operation Homefront, the national non-profit that provides emergency financial and other assistance to military families and Wounded Warriors, has launched its annual Back-to-School Brigade program to collect school supplies for military kids.

Operation Homefront, and its organizations and volunteers, across the nation will begin collecting donated school supplies, along with monetary donations, that they will distribute to the children of service members at the beginning of the school year. In 2011, the Back-to-School Brigade raised more than $2 million in monetary donations and school supplies nationwide for military kids.

Local Colorado Springs Dollar Tree stores are participating in the program; some locations are Citadel Crossings, 855 N. Academy Blvd, Spring Creek Shopping Center, 1530 S. Circle Dr, and Audubon Center, 2417 N. Union Blvd.
