Coastal Orthopedics donates computers to Boys and Girls Clubs of Manatee County

The full-service practice Coastal Orthopedics recently donated 16 Dell Precision M4500 laptops and corresponding equipment to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County, an afterschool and summer program that offers hope and opportunity to every child in the community.

The laptops and computer equipment will be used in the nonprofit’s teen center at the Palmetto Boys and Girls Club, which serves about 40-50 students daily.

“Our team is so appreciative to Coastal Orthopedics for this contribution,” said Dawn Stanhope, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County. “We have a variety of needs in our clubs, but technology is an important component, especially for our high school students who are preparing for college, filling out online applications and applying for scholarships. All of our students will be thrilled to see this equipment and utilize them in our programs.”

With five locations, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County reaches more than 3,000 youth annually. The nonprofit offers programs for academic success, good character and citizenship and healthy lifestyles and has been serving the community for over 73 years.

“Contributing to our community is an important component to the team at Coastal Orthopedics,” said Paige LeMay, the CEO of Coastal Orthopedics. “It’s our mission to provide top-notch health care services throughout the region, and we believe it’s our duty to assist organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County to continue its extremely important work for families in Manatee County.”
