5 new iPads for Hephzibah Children's Association!

The Terri Race Educational Technology Fund is proud to announce its latest donation to the Hephzibah Children’s Association in Oak Park.  If you're from the OPRF area, then we're sure you are familiar with the inspiring work that the organization has accomplished for over one hundred years.  The idea for the donation was initiated thanks to the collaboration of Molly Philosophos, Hephzibah’s Development Director, two generous technology-savvy volunteers at the home, Brian Druley and Sue Stark and Summer Reading Academy director, Paula Andies. After seeing the iPads in action at the annual Hephzibah Summer Reading Academy held at Dominican University, our goal was truly realized as we watched the kids seamlessly transition into the world of the iPad.  Terri was an instant fan of the Apple device when it was first released and we know she would be inspired to see several of them in the hands of those who will benefit most from their use. The Tech Fund team couldn't have found a better recipient and looks forward to working together with Hephzibah in the future!
