On Wednesday, Jan. 20 the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township Board Members and Leadership Team were presented with a $50,000 check donation on behalf of Chris Nelson, Director of Government Affairs, and several management leaders from Comcast (Chicago Region).
Awarded by the Comcast Foundation, a charitable entity of Comcast, the grant will go toward expanding My.Future, a technology training program that gives users a chance to build upon their skills week after week, said Curt McReynolds, president and CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of Dundee Township.
The grant will be used for purchasing new equipment, such as tablets, printers, digital cameras, music studio tools and video editing software, according to a news release from Comcast. Additionally, it will allow club staff members to be better trained in the program.
“Our goal is to really expand it out and try to reach more kids with more sessions of the program,” McReynolds said.
