Amazon surprised members of the Cyborgs Robotics Team in Joliet with a $5,000 donation. The donation will support the team's trip to the FIRST Robotics World Championship in St. Louis on April 26-29th. Amazon general manager Mike Flannery attended a robotics team meeting to surprise the students with the donation. Members of the robotics team took time to demonstrate a robot from past competition for the Amazon associates. The donation is part of Amazon's ongoing commitment to give back in local communities where its associates work and live.
