The Smart Center has received a grant from The McConnell Fund of the Shasta Regional Community Foundation. The grant totaling $15,846 was for virtual desktop equipment in Shasta and Trinity counties. We used this, along with donated software from Microsoft to upgrade fifty systems in our job centers and classrooms. The new systems have replaced equipment that was 10 years old. In addition, they are the size of a typical router which has freed up desk space for job seekers! Thank you to The McConnell Fund, Shasta Regional Community Foundation, and Microsoft!
