Since our initial parent computer program launch in 2003, the First Niagara Bank and First Niagara Foundation have been steadfast supporters of CfAL. Their financial support has helped us implement and sustain our summer math program and, more importantly, our parent computer program. Through the parent computer program, we have trained and given gently-used computers to more than 3,100 disadvantaged families, who live in the poorest neighbors of Connecticut’s major urban centers. In 2014, we trained and gave computers to 374 families, as we strove to extend learning beyond the classroom, increase parents’ involvement in their children’s education, and simultaneously help close the “digital divide”.
Through the magic and generosity of the First Niagara Bank, CfAL recently received their donation of 300 gently-used computers. We are so thankful for this tremendous donation, which provides enough computers to cover our parent computer program gently-used computer needs for nearly an entire year. This donation will have a positive impact on the lives of nearly 1,000 people, on their path of life-long learning.
Of behalf of CfAL’s Board of Director, staff and volunteers, we are ever thankful for this wonderful gift.
