Ed Technology Specialists is proud to be able to support communities around schools by donating a portion of gross revenue to the following causes:
Island Harvest has become Long Island’s largest hunger relief organization. It’s volunteers and staff deliver millions of pounds of good, surplus food – much of which might otherwise go to waste – to a network of 570 Long Island-based food pantries, soup kitchens and other non-profit organization that offer feeding services for those in need.
By doing this, they provide a vital supply of food to counter the sharply rising problem of hunger here. In recent years, they have begun to attack hunger in targeted and strategic ways. The most visible example of this is the Weekend Backpack Feeding Program. Piloted in 2006, this initiative provides 35,000+ packs of nutritious food to schoolchildren who rely on school lunches and breakfasts and may not receive solid meals on weekends.
Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Maria Disaster Response
A portion of tuition from the Fall 2017 session will be going to Habitat for Humanity’s Hurricane disaster response. Funds will be going towards rebuilding houses and shelters for those affected by these natural disasters.
Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria have caused unprecedented and widespread devastation, forcing thousands of people out of damaged homes and communities in Texas, Florida, and the Caribbean.
Habitat for Humanity has local organizations throughout the regions affected by the storms. With the help of these communities, they are assessing shelter and housing needs.
Ed Technology Specialists is proud to support this effort.
