New IT equipment donated to Nazareth Housing

The Rotary Club of Wall Street is pleased to announce that we are supporting the Nazareth Housing with a project that updated their aging IT infrastructure by providing new technology including desktop and laptop computers, printers and software, for both its administrative and case management offices as well as the Nazareth Housing’s Center for Learning and Self Sufficiency (CLASS).

The IT equipment has been configured and is now installed in the Nazareth Housing offices and the CLASS center. All over you see staff with big smiles on their faces as they enjoy the super fast speeds of their new IT equipment! Father Michael Callaghan, the Executive Director of Nazareth Housing, expressed his sincere gratitude to all Rotarians involved in the project! The “star” of their new equipment is the MS Surface convertible PC/tablet, which they might use to register attendees at the NH’s Annual Benefit event next week, at which the RC of Wall Street will receive the NH’s community service award, alongside Cardinal Dolan.

The project is made possible by way of a matching grant from the Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Club of Wall Street has partnered with the Rotary Clubs of Hartsdale and Pleasantville (both Westchester NY), the Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise (Ontario, Canada), as well as Rotary Districts 7040, 7240 (Eastern Canada) and 1880 (South East Germany), all of which contributed to the base funds for this grant. The money provided by the Rotary Club of Wall Street were funds that our club has received from many generous individuals, Rotarians and non-Rotarians, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

This week Rotarians from District 1880 joined RC Wall street to visit Nazareth Housing & Bowery Mission.

As part of our ongoing partnership with Nazareth Housing, we will begin a service project this fall that includes computer literacy courses for low income families, using the new equipment installed as part of this project.
