Legacy Foundation improves technology at St. Jude House
St. Jude House team is grateful for the continued support.
Crown Point, June 2017: Legacy Foundation provides grants that encourage, inspire and improve lives in the communities of Lake County. St. Jude House has been one of the organizations to benefit from their grants process and generosity.
In August 2016, St. Jude House was awarded a matching grant in the amount of $10,140 from the Lake County Community Fund of the Legacy Foundation in support of upgrades to St. Jude House technology systems. St. Jude House was tasked with raising or matching $10,140.00 in order to receive the funding. Through an appeal to their generous donors and supporters, they were able to surpass the goal and receive the funding.
“With technology being used for educational purposes in schools, many of our children require the use of tablets and laptops. It was important for us to ensure our Wi-Fi was up to par as well as our equipment.” stated Linda Perez, Executive Director of St. Jude House. “Our children need to be able to live stress free while they are with us and lead a normal life as much as possible, their studies are a priority. In addition, our adults need to be able to work on resumes, search for jobs and have access to what they would normally have in their own homes. We are truly grateful to Legacy Foundation for helping us achieve our upgrade.”
