Greenlight Sets Students Up for Success

A founder and CEO of a local IT company hopes to raise funds to deliver 50 new computers to the StandUp For Kids - Orange County outreach center in Anaheim, California. Jason Makevich of Greenlight Information Services, LLC, explained in his promotional video, “Schools are depending on web based content for much of their curriculum." To learn and succeed, it is fundamental that kids have regular access to a computer and to high-speed internet. Greenlight Information Systems, through Makevich's vision, has dedicated time and commitment to bringing numerous computers and services to our youth at the Anaheim center.
It is Jason's passion for the project that has allowed the company to raise nearly $12,000 already, which equates to 20 computers. The goal is 50 units as soon as possible. To help reach that goal, Jason created a video on his YouTube page and shares it with his clients, who in turn have boosted donations. You can watch the video here:
All the proceeds go directly into a fund created for the Anaheim center.
People like Jason Makevich allow the success of our kids to shine through. With this initiative in progress, it is our hope to continue to spread awareness of Jason's campaign and how much it will impact both the Anaheim center and the success of hundreds of our kids with their schoolwork.
