On November 8, 2013, Keep Kids Connected gave away its 600th computer to Jennifer Ramirez Gutierrez of Katy, TX. Jennifer was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in April of 2005. She is currently in follow-up treatment. She is studying Biology at the University of Houston. When Caitlyn met with Jennifer to present her with her tablet, the two realized that they knew each other from Camp A.O.K., a camp offered every summer by MD Anderson for cancer patients and their siblings.
Our recent donation of can tabs to the Ronald McDonald House in Houston, TX. Thank you for helping us collect aluminum cans to purchase computers and for separating the tabs to donate to the Ronald McDonald House.
Remember, Keep Kids Connected collects and recycles aluminum beverage cans the second Saturday of every month at the Tradition Bank Pin Oak location in old Katy with the help of the National Charity League Ladybird Chapter. Please stop by on Saturday, December 14th to donate your aluminum cans. The proceeds from the recycling are used to help purchase Netbook computers. Remember to remove the tabs from the cans and place them in a separate ziplock bag so we can donate them to the Ronald McDonald House to help defray the costs of operating the facility.
