CONWAY — Boys & Girls Club of Faulkner County recently announced it has received technology grants totalling more than $9,200 from HP.

HP’s donation to the Boys & Girls Club, including 12 HP Pro All-in-One PCs, will be used in the Club technology lab. Members will use the technology to help develop basic computer skills, as well as participate in Club Tech programs. Through the Club Tech suite of programs, kids learn how to use basic business software, be safe online and learn advanced hardware and networking skills.

Education & Career programs are one of the five core program areas offered at Boys & Girls Clubs. All programs are designed to help us fulfil our mission to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential.

"We applaud HP’s commitment to education. The equipment that we’ve received today will enhance the learning experience for hundreds of children in our community," Bill Hegeman, Campaign Steering Committee Co-Chair, said.

"HP is committed to applying our technology, expertise, and dedicated volunteers to increase quality of life and contribute to the prosperity of people and communities around the world. With this grant, we are helping to open up new opportunities for Boys & Girls Club members and help foster their technology growth," said Gabi Zedlmayer, vice president, Office of Sustainability and Social Innovation, HP, about Boys & Girls Club of Faulkner County.
