I'm super excited!
We have the chance to be given a $150,000 grant from Chase's Mission Main Street program. The purpose of the grant is to help small businesses make it big and grow there business and positively impact the community.
As many you know, this grant couldn't be a better fit for ER2. Our community outreach and computer donation program this year has exploded and thanks to our growing number of Partners, we will shatter last years donations.
Just to give you an example of how positively impacting providing a computer to an under privileged teen, let me tell you a story about Ceclia. Ceclia has bounced around from foster home to group home to foster home since she was 11 years old when she was removed from her unstable and abusive home environment.
Ceclia was struggling in her freshman year of high school primarily because she lacked the resources that the other kids had. We were able to give her a laptop and the rest of the story flat out amazed me. Ceclia immediately began learning how to use the computer and increased her knowledge daily. She has now raised her GPA to a 3.5, but more importantly has mastered basic and some advanced skills that will help her in the workforce beyond high school.
A simple click of the mouse HERE, would hopefully allow us to give the same opportunity that Ceclia had to many more deserving teens.
