CBA Community Grant

Posted Thursday, 7 November 2013, 02:00 PM

The Parkside Foundation have been successful in obtaining funds through a CBA Community Grant to purchase iPads and applications for some new programming. This is the second Parkside program that the Bank staff have supported.

This Community Grant will fund The Parkside Foundation’s In The Loop Program, which is using iPads to help people with disabilities. iPads can replace expensive ad bulky communication devices and are particularly suited to the disabled. Their use in literacy, art, photography and graphic design will benefit those who have difficulty their fine motor skills such as holding brushes or scissors.

A group from Parkside were presented with the cheque for $7320.00 from the Commonwealth Bank Staff Community Fund. We look forward to getting the iPads in to use.
