Several IT staff attended the ED Tech fundraiser last May, l.-r., Andrew Carbone (former CH associate), David Rhoads, Julie Kuhns, George Condoyannis, Darby Johnston, Mark Martin, Julie Russell (Mercy OHU), Jeff Miller, Rosemary Kuca, Jeanine Mulak, Michael Hoenow and Colleen (Kelly) Brown.
Volunteers from the Educational Technology Foundation of WNY (also known as ED Tech Foundation) recently held their largest ever Annual ED Tech Day on August 20, helping to upgrade computer technology at 11 area schools and non-profit organizations.
The Foundation was started in 2003, an idea of former Catholic Health CIO Doug Torre, who organized a group of IT associates interested in donating their time and expertise to this cause.
To date, the Foundation, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, has helped over 90 schools and non-profit organizations and deployed hundreds of donated PCs throughout the community. Catholic Health IT associates David Rhoads and George Condoyannis have been involved in the organization since its inception and still serve on the ED Tech Foundation’s Executive Board, along with IT’s Colleen Brown.
