Gwinnett companies donate computers, wi-fi adaptors

Rainbow Village recently received donations of computers and Wi-Fi adaptors from X-Cel Specialty Contacts, 2775 Premiere Pkwy. in Duluth and CentricsIT, 3140 Northwoods Pkwy. in Norcross. The electronics will allow Rainbow Village families to connect to the organization’s campus-wide Wi-Fi which was made possible from a grant from the Waffle House Foundation. These gifts are allowing students to take part in online schooling and adults to work remotely, when possible.

Rainbow Village is a transitional housing program where homeless families with children find refuge to recover and rebuild their lives. Most of the heads of household at Rainbow Village are women that have fled domestic violence and poverty. Rainbow Village provides a multi-year program that includes housing and support services for the whole family including life skills training, character building classes, counseling, career development, after-school programs, financial education, and more with the goal of ending the cycle of homelessness, poverty and domestic violence.
