The agents and owners of Active Adults Realty raised $5,000 to purchase 25 laptops for the students in partnership with Children & Families First in Seaford, DE.
The Seaford Community of Hope is a project developed in partnership with the Casey Foundation, Children & Families First and the Sussex County Health Coalition. The mission is to help children facing adversity on their journey to adulthood.
Seaford Community of Hope leverages cross-agency and cross-community collaboration in Seaford to reduce the occurrence of maltreatment, decrease the number of children entering foster care; and decrease re-entry to care for children who have experienced foster care.
With these funds, Matt Hart, owner of Adel Computers, sourced the laptops, upgraded and repaired them as needed, added solid-state drives, and updated software. “We connected with Jeffrey Benson a Community Activist and Jefferson Award Winner who spearheads the project along with his colleague Kathryn Burritt in Seaford” states Kathy Sperl-Bell. Both are instrumental in providing resources and wraparound services that help meet the needs of the families within this community. “We are so grateful for this kind donation. The students will be greatly Blessed by this selfless effort by Active Adults Realty and Adel Computers,” said Benson.
“Our donation will advance their initiative to provide technology devices to children so that they can participate in remote learning opportunities during these difficult times.”
