McDermott Will & Emery generously donated 36 like new computers to the families participating in the All-Aboard Family Literacy Program.
The computers will allow the families to incorporate technology and literacy by allowing them to access educational and community resources directly from their homes. McDermott Will & Emery has been a sponsor of the All-Aboard Programs since 2005.
On August 8, 2008 they will host the 3rd Annual Back to School Supply Drive. Fifty (50) school-age All-Aboard children will receive new book bags filled with everything they will need to start the school year. The collaborative efforts of McDermott Will & Emery and the All-Aboard Programs are used to reinforce literacy, vocabulary and reading comprehension but most importantly to share the love of reading with other All-Aboard families. Providing additional mentoring and support to these families is essential in order to combat low literacy rates.
