KMDIT, one of the nation’s premier providers of boutique IT solutions & services has donated 1,000 COVID-19 antibody test kits to Fairfield College Preparatory School in Fairfield, CT,
in support of student athletes. The total number of test kits will be distributed amongst all athletic teams within the school and will cover the full cost of diagnostics.
The President and CEO of KMDIT, Kevin Donohue commented that the school’s athletic presence in the Fairfield community fosters goodwill, builds relationships, and evokes a sense of pride that are vital to business and the local economy.
“As a Jesuit institution, Fairfield Prep focuses on care for the mind, body, and spirit, and this includes concern for others, not just ‘self.’ My longstanding support of the school and Athletic Director, Tom Curran, is important as an alumni and contributor, but also as a business owner who understands the value of outreach in the form of community service,” said Donohue.
With the donation of these tests, the hope is that more student athletes will receive timely clearance to participate in their season, and thereby help maintain community morale. “I’m sensitive to the challenges that have arisen from this pandemic,” Donohue added. “Every day, in addition to caring for employees, business owners everywhere have an obligation to implement the necessary measures to alleviate stress in the community and ensure the safety of young people who might otherwise forgo testing.”
“The COVID-19 Antibody test kits will add an important additional layer in our efforts to keep the Fairfield Prep student athletes healthy and safe in our current pandemic environment. The kits will be deployed to athletes who will be given the opportunity to opt-in with parental consent to the testing program. We are incredibly grateful to
Mr. Donohue for his support of the school,” said Dr. Tommy de Quesada, Principal of Fairfield Prep.
