Support for critical tech upgrades
When the Haynes House of Hope needed to make critical technology upgrades, the Granville-based nonprofit organization turned to the Special and Urgent Needs Fund at Adirondack Foundation for support.
The active-care facility for the terminally ill, which has been operating since 2009, had been using computers, printers and scanners genersouly donated by community members. But the aging equipment left staff with just one usable computer and one printer, and the facility was sorely in need of two computers and a toner printer. To make matters worse, the nursing station was lacking a computer.
Thanks to a grant from the Special and Urgent Needs Fund, the Haynes House of Hope was able to upgrade its technology with a laptop, a computer and a printer.
"We, the Haynes House of Hope, thank Adirondack Foundation for the generous technology grant," Haynes House of Hope Public Relations Director Karen Filkins-Sanders said. "Our new equipment will replace our outdated and unusable technology which will improve our ability to serve our clients."
