GSF Foundation Grant Makes Computer Lab a Reality for Local Elementary School

2011.12.01 Computer LabHuntington Drive Elementary School of Los Angeles hosted the grand opening of the Golden State Foods Foundation Computer Lab on December 1. GSF Foundation donated over $49,000 to purchase 32 brand new Apple flat screen computers. This grant will enable Huntington Drive to continue its successful Accelerated Reader Program where students read for one hour after school, four days a week.

Becky Kruger, Senior Administrative Assistant/Customer Service – CIM, and Rosie Padilla, Human Resources Manager – CIM, were on hand to cut the ribbon to open the lab.

“I was so moved when we walked into the computer lab and saw all the brand new computers set up with their books,” said Becky. “I felt like we had helped the futures of all these children and their lives ahead of them.”

Associates from GSF’s City of Industry, Calif., Manufacturing facility (CIM) and Distribution facility (CID), the IT Department at CID, GSF’s Corporate Office in Irvine, Calif., and donors and supporters of a “Bowling Bash” made the donation possible.

Huntington Drive Elementary will begin a three-day opening week of the Accelerated Reader Program on January 11, 2012.
