Fox & Roach Charities Board of Trustees recently contributed a total of $150,000 for children's education towards technology advancement to three separate organizations in commemoration of Fox & roach Charities' 20th anniversary. “Our mission is to improve inner city education and our overall vision was to create an initiative that would involve all three states that we serve to make a major difference in the lives of underprivileged youth,” explains BHHS Fox & Roach Chairman & CEO Larry Flick.
The Gesu School, located in Philadelphia, was one recipient of a $50,000 gift to purchase Chromebooks for 90 students, storage carts, licensing and new wiring in classrooms. Pictured here at a recent visit to the Gesu School are BHHS Fox & Roach executives, Larry Flick, Joan Docktor, Gerry Griesser and Steve Storti, Fox & Roach Charities President Kassie Erb, Gesu School President & CEO Bryan Carter and Gesu teachers and students. During this visit, executives observed students using their new Chromebooks and gained an understanding of how their donation has transformed the learning environment.
“This contribution was made to Gesu to assist them in continuing to be on the leading edge of educational advancements,” explains Kassie. “We are very proud of our funding and hope to continue our support to help underprivileged children so that they have the same learning, through technology, that other children have.” In addition to the Gesu School, two other $50,000 donations were presented to Respond Inc. (NJ), and West End Neighborhood House (DE) for technology advancement.
