On Friday, Nov. 1, Hart and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter visited four schools that received 300 laptops, while 27 community centers were granted 200 desktop computers. The gift from Hart couldn’t have come at a better time; the Philadelphia school district has suffered budget cuts that have led to 24 school closings.
Nothing but the best shall come from Hart’s contribution. Superintendent William Hite said, “These computers will allow our students to expand their studies, explore new course material, and prepare for college and careers for years to come.” Recreation commissioner Susan Slawson shares the same sentiment saying these computers are an “invaluable resource for our youth.”
But no one’s sentiment was more hart-felt than the man himself. In a statement, Hart explained how blessed he is to be in the position to give back to the city where he grew up.
We are certain there is more to come from this story and many kids will be inspired by Hart’s generosity.
