The Rotary Club of Wall Street is pleased to announce that we are supporting the Nazareth Housing as part of our club’s ongoing Lower East Side Hurricane Sandy relief activities with a project that is valued close to US$ 25,000.
We will assist Nazareth Housing with updating 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 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.
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.
