Epicurean Charitable Foundation Launches Clothing and Laptop Drive for Students

June 24, 2011 by  

Epicurean Charitable Foundation Las Vegas (ECFLV) is now accepting donations of new and gently used laptops and new professional business attire for students before the 2011 fall semester begins.

While ECFLV offers financial assistance through scholarships, many of these students do not have the resources to purchase laptops and other necessities, such as appropriate attire for professional networking functions.

“The majority of students within our scholarship program do not have their own computer, or even professional attire to wear to a job interview,” said Kevin Dimond, president of the Epicurean Charitable Foundation. “While our program provides funding for tuition, books and fees; there is still much more that our students need to be successful. Plus, this is an opportunity for our community to come together to help benefit the education of these bright, young students.

Sting Systems, a local leading provider of advanced security and monitoring systems, is donating services to repair and uncover any operating system issues, remove viruses and spyware, and optimize all student laptops for improved performance.

ECFLV will collect laptops and new professional business attire donations for the month of July at the following locations in the Las Vegas Valley. Any remaining clothing and laptops will be re-donated to other children’s and educational foundations by the Epicurean Charitable Foundation.
