TowerCares Foundation Funds Cybercafés to Help Homeless Veterans
[Laurel, MD]—The TowerCares Foundation donated $20,000 to the Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training (MCVET) to provide funds for three computer rooms at MCVET’s facility for homeless veterans in Baltimore, Md. The new “cybercafés” are equipped with computers, printers, Wi/Fi, computer desks and chairs.
The computers and Internet access will help veterans residing at MCVET apply for jobs, increase work skills, learn new technologies and communicate with family and friends.
“The TowerCares Foundation $20,000 grant for the computers and cybercafés was a demonstration of our appreciation for MCVET’s homeless veterans—men and women who have served our country,” says Rick Stafford, TowerCares Foundation President & President/CEO of Tower Federal Credit Union.
The new cybercafés officially opened in mid-February, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the event.
“On behalf of our students and staff at MCVET, we owe a huge thank you to the TowerCares Foundation for the computers and cybercafés,” said Cereta Spencer, Director of Development for MCVET. Since 1993, MCVET has provided homeless veterans, both men and women, and other veterans in need in the Baltimore area with comprehensive services designed to help them rejoin the community as productive citizens.
