City Kids Donation Makes At-Home Learning Possible for Students at the Rafael Hernandez School
City Realty Group’s nonprofit provides new laptops and monetary donation for access to BPS portal makes at-home learning possible for children in need.
City Kids, a youth education nonprofit founded by City Realty Group, donated 12 new Chromebook laptop computers to students at the Rafael Hernandez School, a two-way bilingual school in Boston.
City Kids and City Realty Group delivered the Chromebooks to school staff who provided them to students who need them for at-home learning.
City Kids also made a check presentation that will pay for access to the Boston Public School online portal, making it possible for the students to participate in school from home.
This timely donation comes at a time when Boston Public Schools has paused reopening plans with the city’s COVID-19 positive test rate increasing. This means more at-home learning and more urgency to help students-in-need to ensure they have the proper resources to participate in school from home.
City Kids was founded by City Realty Group Managing Partners Stephen Whalen and Fred Starikov. To date, the program has donated more than 2000 laptops to local schools and educational programs.
