Eskenazi Health donated the first 50 of as many as 1000 17″ LCD monitors to Net Literacy today, continuing their long standing program of giving back to the communities that they serve.
“Eskenazi Health’s donation makes a real difference to students and their families,” said Daniel Kent, founder of Net Literacy. “As an independent variable, students with a computer at home are 7% more likely to graduate from high school. Because we have more computers to donate than monitors, Eskenazi Health’s generous donation will enable us to provide increased technology to the homes of up to 1000 K12 families, and according to the statistics, more than 70 additional students may graduate from high school.” Net Literacy also donates computers to afterschool providers, public libraries, community centers, and other nonprofits. “Thank you Eskenazi Health,” Kent continued, “for being such an amazing community partner!”
