The IT equipment at the Center was poor to non-existent. One of our volunteers experienced the need and donated $2500 to purchase lap tops for the students. The Bridge Fund was approached stating that we had received a $2500 donation to be used as a match to purchase new lap tops. Together, the Fund and the Donor agreed to the Match and we were able to purchase 12 new lap tops and Sony Head Phones. The equipment turned the environment around 360 degrees. The students were proud and excited to be able to use computers that worked so they could do their homework, check their grades, do research, and sometimes sneak in an educational game or two.
