Nerds in red help community get fed

Greensburg — On Saturday, Shelbyville’s Nerds on Site computer repair and technology support firm will hold a canned food drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in front of Walmart to benefit Greensburg’s Bread of Life Soup Kitchen.

David Sly, owner and operator of the Shelbyville Nerds on Site branch, told the Daily News that such drives have been coined “Fill the Beetle and Feed the People” events due to the signature red Volkswagen Beetle driven by Nerds on Site representatives.

“We’ll have one of our red VW Beetles parked in front of the Walmart,” Sly said. “The car really helps draw attention to the event.”

Sly further intimated that the Canadian-based Nerds on Site strives to have a positive impact in all the communities in which it operates.

“We want people to understand,” he explained, “that we’re not here just to make money. We sincerely care about our communities and its people.”

He continued, “As a business, Nerds on Site is a team concept; we work together to get the job done for both our small business and residential clients. Our company is structured so that we have constant support from a world-wide network of technology experts. We want to extend that idea of supporting each other into the communities in which we work. We’re not here just to come in, charge you an outrageous fee, do the work and forget about you. We care about every person we work for; we care about this community, and that’s what we hope to convey through events like Fill the Beetle and Feed the People.”
