Hendricks County Commissioners have proclaimed Monday, March 15 “Bright House Networks-Net Literacy Day,” recognizing the dedication of Bright House Networks and partner Net Literacy of Indiana to the local community through their current initiative that provides computers at no cost to a host of area non-profits. The Day Nursery Hendricks County Early Care and Education Center is excited to be part of the Hendricks County non-profits to receive personal computer donations from this partnership. Center Director Joy McCall joined with other community leaders to salute Bright House Networks at the March Hendricks County Commissioners meeting. The Day Nursery center received 7 computers which will be used to replace outdated equipment used by the children in the classrooms. Over the course of the last few weeks, nearly 50 computers were donated to seven Hendricks County non-profits that combined provide programs, services and computer access to more than 8,000 county residents. The other agencies include Sheltering Wings, Hendricks County Senior Services, Sycamore Services, Mental Health Association, Susie’s Place, and Head Start. Net Literacy of Indiana is an Indiana-based non-profit incorporated in 2003 by middle school students that has repurposed thousands of computers and established community computer labs in dozens of Indiana communities to provide computer access to more than 100,000 Hoosiers throughout the state.
