(WEST CHESTER, PA – July 15, 2021): The MacElree Harvey, Ltd. Technology Fund for Economically Disadvantaged Children was created in 2020. The mission is to provide funds for educational computer hardware or software and other tools to children of economically marginalized communities who are underrepresented and have been denied the full complement of the educational equipment needed to successfully compete in the 21st Century. The fund is a fund of the Chester County Community Foundation.

This summer, the fund is pleased to announce its first grant awards: $2,100 to the Garage Community & Youth Center, $2,100 to the Maternal & Child Health Consortium, and $2,100 to the Youth Men & Women In Charge (YMWIC).

The Garage Community & Youth Center is an after school and Youth Development program serving Middle and High School Students in Kennett Square and West Grove.
