Macelree Harvey, Ltd. Technology Fund For Economically Disadvantaged Children To Award $6,300 In Grants
Funds will benefit Chester County Organizations Supporting Children of Traditionally Marginalized Communities
(WEST CHESTER, PA – July 15, 2021): The MacElree Harvey, Ltd. Technology Fund for Economically Disadvantaged Children was created in 2020. The mission is to provide funds for educational computer hardware or software and other tools to children of economically marginalized communities who are underrepresented and have been denied the full complement of the educational equipment needed to successfully compete in the 21st Century. The fund is a fund of the Chester County Community Foundation.
This summer, the fund is pleased to announce its first grant awards: $2,100 to the Garage Community & Youth Center, $2,100 to the Maternal & Child Health Consortium, and $2,100 to the Youth Men & Women In Charge (YMWIC).
Fund Advisor and Community Foundation Board Member John McKenna, Esq. shares his thoughts on this exciting grant announcement. “MacElree Harvey stands for diversity, equity and inclusion.”
The Garage Community & Youth Center is an after school and Youth Development program serving Middle and High School Students in Kennett Square and West Grove. They provide resources, hope, and life for their students. The Maternal & Child Health Consortium helps children in Chester County get the best start in life and those parents can raise their children to be healthy and do well in school. Through different programming they provide mothers with resources, knowledge, and support for their child to be successful. The YMWIC works to empower young men and women to go into fields of STEM through mentoring, tutoring, and leadership seminars.
