Nonprofits First Brings Two Groups Together to Provide Students With Computers

Posted By Charlotte Gill, Monday, June 24, 2019

Krissy Webb was in a bind.

 

She runs a nonprofit, Student ACES (ACE), that helps high school athletes become better people through character education programs. Her organization was building a new academic, health and wellness center in the Glades -- thanks to a building donation from Bank of America -- and the center needed computers for the students.

 

Where could ACE get dozens of computers – ideally for free?

 

The solution came when Krissy spoke with Jessica Cecere, CEO of Nonprofits First, who suggested Krissy contact Adrian Abedon, the brainchild behind DinoTech Foundation, which refurbishes computers for disadvantaged students.

 

Krissy talked to Adrian, a high school student in Boca Raton, and just like that ACE had desktop and laptop computers for their students.

 

“Next thing you know, my car is filled with computers and there will be hundreds of high school students who will have the opportunity to use computers for their academic growth,” Krissy said.

 

It was an ideal collaboration between two local nonprofit organizations, and Nonprofits First made the connection.

 

“I had reached out to Jessica to see if she knew of anyone who was getting rid of computers and boom -- Adrian and I are connected and these students will now have an incredible computer lab,” Krissy said.

 

Krissy added: “Nonprofits First is always my go-to for advice and connections, they are the experts and are always there to support growth and capacity of Student ACES. We have been members for four years and they are an incredible-resource in our community. Jessica and team are always there to assist.”
