COCA-COLA SOUTHWEST BEVERAGES SPONSORS NEW TECHNOLOGY LABS FOR BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF SAN ANTONIO
Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages (CCSWB) has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio (BGCSA) to bring three new technology centers to Club members in the community. The $320,000 project includes three newly renovated labs with state-of-the-art laptops and new furniture for BGCSA youth to use for homework, college and career prep, and other important projects.
This project will support more than 570 members served at BGCSA’s Calderon, Eastside and Mays Clubhouses. Across all BGCSA Clubhouses, 95% of youth served are from historically marginalized communities that often lack equitable access to technology. The labs renovated and furnished by CCSWB will help bridge the digital divide that greatly impacts much of San Antonio’s youth.
“We’re proud to have partnered with BGCSA for many years to empower their mission to serve local youth,” said Jean Claude Tissot, president of CCSWB. “What began with an initial update of one computer lab in 2021, has become a building block to provide BGCSA kids critical access to technology.”
Boys & Girls Clubs San Antonio CEO Ada Saenz added, “BGCSA works to serve the youth that need us most in whatever ways possible. These three new tech labs are going to continually make long-term impacts on our youths’ outcomes.”
