Gismondi Family Foundation to help provide laptops to Pittsburgh students

The Gismondi Family Foundation is proud to announce their partnership with Neighborhood Allies and Computer Reach to make laptops available to Pittsburgh Public School students.  The program, called “Beyond the Laptops,” is designed to make laptops available to Pittsburgh students who are most in need of these critical educational tools.

The focus of the program is to acquire and refurbish gently used laptops to distribute to students who need them. It also helps families get internet access that is vital to online learning programs. Students will be identified by the University of Pittsburgh and their Community Education Centers.

Other partners in the program include Aurora, the Pittsburgh Technology Council, University of Pittsburgh, Google, the Richard King Mellon Foundation, and the Heinz Foundation. To date, more than $200,000 has been raised.

The Gismondi Family Foundation was created by Pittsburgh attorney John Gismondi and his wife Lisa. The Foundation focuses on non-profit organizations who promote education and medical care as well as charitable giving in the areas of clothing, food and shelter for Southwestern Pennsylvania.
