Local Parker Businesses Help Bring Technology to Disadvantaged Kids

Parker, CO, March 21, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Technology is a very important learning tool for students these days and the Parker Staples and Office Depot stores helped make having this technology possible for disadvantaged students in several school districts across the Denver Metro area. Working with Step to Success, a local Parker tutoring center, they were able to make laptops available for students receiving Supplemental Education Services in the Denver, Aurora and Adams 14 school districts.

Step to Success, a Supplemental Education Services provider for the Colorado Department of Education, has been tutoring disadvantaged students in neighboring districts since 2002. As part of their program, they give laptops to the students so that they may further their education from home. When their normal supplier was unable to help them this year, Diane Kulback, owner of Step to Success, called her local Staples and Office Depot stores. They not only helped her to obtain the laptops needed in a short amount of time, but also extended her a discount.

"Oftentimes, a good deed goes unannounced, but we wanted to make sure that everyone knows of the help we recently received from the managers at the Parker Staples and Office Depot Stores,” said Diane Kulback, “The manager of Staples, John Harding, and the manager of Office Depot, Amanda Foust, are to be commended for the help they provided to me and to the disadvantaged students who will truly benefit from this much needed technology."
