RIDLEY PARK, Pa. – Taylor Hospital physicians recently donated 18 laptops to the Boys and Girls Club of Chester. Daniel DuPont D.O., associate chair of the Department of Medicine for Taylor Hospital, recalls asking Stephanie LaFrance, director of Patient Relations for Crozer-Keystone Health System, where Taylor could donate the laptops for educational purposes. “Stephanie suggested the Boys and Girls Club because, at the time, Crozer-Chester Medical Center was fundraising for the organization,” DuPont says.

The Club serves boys and girls ranging from 6-18 years of age. “The largest age group that we serve is in the age range of 10-14 years,” says Janet Riley-Ford, executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Chester. “Our goal is to nurture the development of youth by guiding them along a path to success in an environment that supports excellence in education.” The Club also promotes healthy lifestyles; however, they are most proud of developing good character and citizenship within their boys and girls so that they are able to become contributing members of society and understand the importance of giving back to their community.

“Words cannot express how grateful we are for the laptop donation from Taylor Hospital’s physicians,” Riley-Ford says. “They will definitely help improve the educational programs that we provide to our children while helping to bridge the digital divide that is often evident in our communities.”

The Boys and Girls Club of Chester was established in 1930 to provide a place of learning, support and growth for the youth of Chester in a safe environment. Today, they continue their mission in the George E. Carter Center located at 201 E. 7th Street in Chester. This modern facility offers school-aged boys and girls with entertaining programs and athletic activities in an environment that is focused on education, character development and discussing healthy lifestyle choices.
