Boston – City Kids, a youth education nonprofit founded by City Realty Group managing partners Fred Starikov and Stephen Whalen, donated 10 new Chromebook laptop computers to students at the Eliot K-8 Innovation School, the oldest continuously-operating public school in Boston.
City Kids and City Realty Group were joined by former District 1 city councilor, Sal LaMattina, to personally deliver the Chromebooks to Eliot School principal, Traci Walker Griffith, and students who need them for at-home learning.
This timely donation comes when Boston Public Schools has paused reopening plans after the city’s COVID-19 positive test increased. This means there is more at-home learning and more urgency to help students-in-need to ensure they have the proper resources to participate in school from home.
To date, the City Kids program has donated more than 2,000 laptops to local schools and educational programs.
City Kids is a nonprofit program whose goal is to spark intellectual curiosity in the children of Boston by providing them with unique experiences and powerful educational resources. The program provides summer camp scholarships, art programs, free yoga classes, playground clean-ups, backpack giveaways, community meals and even surfing trips to New England beaches.
