BCG Digital Ventures Volunteers Revamp Digital Learning Center

BCG Digital Ventures, Helps Improve School on Wheels’ Learning Center at the Homeless Shelter in Compton.

In August, 75 employees from BCG Digital Ventures’ Manhattan Beach location volunteered their time, helping School on Wheels improve its learning center at the homeless shelter in Compton. The Digital Ventures volunteers cleaned the rooms, painted the walls, and assembled and lifted furniture.The end result: a beautiful center where children can do their homework at furnished workstations, toddlers can play educational games on colorful rugs, and babies can sleep in newly assembled cribs. In addition to providing the children with new furniture and an amazing Digital Learning Center, BCG Digital Ventures (along with donations from Bristol Farms, Beautify Earth, and many more) also contributed new computers, printers, and a charging station. Thank you to everyone who helped make School on Wheels’ Digital Learning Center possible!
