Boston – City Realty Group, a real estate development company, is providing new technology resources for students at Saint Brendan School in Dorchester.
Representatives of the City Kids program visited the neighborhood parish school to donate 10 new Chromebooks that will help students with remote learning and at school.
City Kids is a youth education nonprofit organization founded by City Realty Group managing partners, Fred Starikov and Stephen Whalen, to spark intellectual curiosity in the children of Boston by providing them unique experiences and powerful educational resources.
Saint Brendan School is a neighborhood parish school that educates and nurtures students in a safe environment rich in Catholic identity and tradition. Built by parishioners in 1951, Saint Brendan is a single grade elementary school located in the Cedar Grove section of Dorchester providing quality education for an annual enrollment of about 245 students.
City Realty VP of operations, James Caruso, visited Saint Brendan on behalf of City Kids to present the new Chromebooks. The donation is especially timely with the need for more at-home and remote learning during the pandemic. City Kids has donated nearly 2000 Chromebooks to urban youth in-need, helped build computer labs in schools and youth organizations, and provided other forms of support to boost education for children in Boston.
