"This donation offered Comodo employees a Win-Win opportunity during this holiday season of giving to share and help others in the community by donating to this worthy charity," said Elene Balasis, director of Human Resources at Comodo.

"At Comodo, we have always valued our relationship with various charitable organizations. As companies continue to cut back, we understand the importance of giving back now more than ever. That's why we pledged to help those in need," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and chief security architect.

Hudson Cradle is an infant group home providing full nurturing residential care to homeless infants with special needs. Most of the babies are prenatally drug exposed, usually cocaine and heroin, some are HIV exposed, and some have been abused or neglected. All of the infants are under the supervision of the Division of youth and Family Services. Hudson Cradle also provides family support and community education. Since opening its doors in 1992, Hudson Cradle has provided a loving home to over 500 infants.
