Oakville, Canada (PRWEB) March 19, 2006
MDG Computers Canada Inc. (MDG) announced today that it has donated over $22,000 in computer equipment to Crystal Beach Public School (part of the District School Board of Niagara) as part of its ongoing partnership with the Steve Nash Foundation. A mobile wireless lab of 12 MDG notebooks was installed at the school a few weeks ago, which will serve over 150 children from Junior Kindergarten through Grade 8.
“The students are so excited about their new lab,” said Tom Reynolds, Principal, Crystal Beach Public School. “Thanks to MDG Computers and the Steve Nash Foundation, this resource will further assist us in the development of our new integration practices for special education, and support our integrated students toward greater success.”
Last July, MDG partnered with the Steve Nash Foundation to endow select Canadian schools with fully equipped MDG computer labs, and to help further the health, personal development, education and enjoyment of life of children in underserved areas.
“Elementary schools give children so much more than a safe place to learn and play – they create an environment that supports growth, fosters imagination, and builds a foundation for kids to open doors to the arts, education, and exploration,” said Jenny Miller, Executive Director of the Steve Nash Foundation. “MDG shares Steve’s appreciation of that role, and we’re proud to partner with them to deliver tools to a vital part of our communities.”
“We’re delighted to contribute to the enhanced education and IT literacy of young students within the Niagara district,” said Mauro Sinagoga, Director of Corporate & Government Sales, MDG Computers Canada. “Through our partnership with the Steve Nash Foundation, we will continue to reach out to local communities in need, to provide them with the tools needed to enhance their learning, and to help them thrive in the global, knowledge-based economy.”
Formed in 2001 and given charitable status in 2004, the Steve Nash Foundation is an organization dedicated to assisting underserved children in their health, personal development, education and enjoyment of life. Like its NBA MVP founder, the Foundation is fast becoming a leader in assists . . . to a slightly shorter population. For more information, visit http://www.stevenash.org.
