The Lyon Cares Foundation announced today that Computers 4 Kids is the recipient of a $5,000 grant. Computers 4 Kids’ mission is to improve the educational outcome of low-income students attending Washington Unified School District by placing computers in the homes of K-12 students.
Operated by Lyon Real Estate, the Lyon Cares Foundation offers time, talent, and treasure to local nonprofits that make their communities a better place. Funds are raised through escrow and payroll contributions by Lyon agents and staff in addition to Lyon’s annual Golf Tournament.
“We will be using this gift to help us expand our free desktop program and assist more families from the Washington Unified School District,” said Leo Alva, Outreach Coordinator of Computers 4 Kids.
“It gives us great pride to give this grant to Computers 4 Kids,” said Lyon Real Estate president Pat Shea. “They are doing very important work.”
In 2017, each of Lyon’s 14 offices, in addition to their headquarters office will be giving two $5,000 grants to organizations of their choice, totaling $150,000. Lyon’s Natomas chose Computers 4 Kids to be the recipient of their grant.
