Spreading Good News

Good News for School on Wheels

Usually when I see the newswomen in this photo, they are reporting on City Hall. Today, I'm turning the tables on them.

The Good News Foundation is a non-profit organization comprised of women in television news and works to make a positive difference in the communities they cover every day. Today, the Good News Foundation dedicated a new computer center at the School on Wheels location that serves students in grades K-12 who are living on Skid Row. The Foundation donated $10,000 and facilitated a donation by OfficeMax of office supplies and computer equipment valued at $20,000.

This is indeed good news for thousands of students who have received tutoring and mentoring through School on Wheels.
