PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwired - November  04, 2013) - Since September 11, 2001, over 2 million servicemen and women  have been deployed to defend our freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since the war  began, more than 50,000 have been wounded; over 1,600 have suffered major limb  amputations, traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries so severe that  their lives would be changed forever. Today, Visioneer is proud to announce that  Homes for Our Troops was  the beneficiary of Visioneer's Where There Is A Need Program last quarter.


Homes for Our Troops exists to restore the gift of freedom and independence  to our nation's most severely injured veterans through the gift of a specially adapted home. They are strongly committed to  helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home  with serious disabilities and injuries. They assist severely injured Veterans  and their families by coordinating the process of building a home that provides  maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently. The  homes provided by Homes for Our Troops are given at no cost to the Veterans.


"In our discussions to select a charity for last quarter, we began thinking  about the anniversary of 911 and how we could help some of the incredible heroes  that have kept our country safe," said Greg Elder, Visioneer's CFO and  Sustainability Officer. "Homes for Our Troops is a wonderful organization and  Visioneer is proud to support them."


About Where There Is A Need          

Where There Is A Need          is a philanthropic  program that helps worthy organizations across the globe that provide assistance  to people and places in need. For every customer who registers a Visioneer or  Xerox® DocuMate® scanner, Visioneer will donate $1 to an international disaster  relief, cause, or environmental program each quarter on their behalf. Both  Visioneer and our customers can now have a direct impact on helping individuals  in need around the world.


"The goal of Where There Is A Need is to embrace responsibility for  our company's actions and encourage a positive impact through our activities on  the people that develop, manufacture and sell our products, the businesses and  families that use our products, and the communities and environment we all live  and work in," added Elder. "It is our goal that Visioneer's social  responsibility is not merely words on our website, but a fundamental part of how  we conduct our business, make decisions, and set our priorities."
