Garrick-Aug makes sure Chelsea's needy get a Dell.

Garrick-Aug Associates Store Leasing, Inc. has contributed 44 "gently used" Dell computers with monitors and peripheral equipment to the Hudson Guild, a neighborhood settlement house with 109 years of service to the Chelsea community on Manhattan's West Side, announced Lawrence J. Selevan, CEO of Garrick-Aug.

When the company upgraded its technology last December, management elected to donate the older models to a worthy organization that could distribute the computers to the families of school children. Director of development services Michael Kramer acted as coordinator for the donation. Mr. Kramer had partnered with the Hudson Guild for many years on community-friendly activities when he was vice-chairman of Community Board 4.

"We are pleased to give back something substantial to one of the communities we serve," said Mr. Kramer. "This is a 501(c) (3) that relies on a large portion of its funding to be supplemented through private sources. Contributing our used computers to an organization with such a wide variety of educational programs was a natural solution for us and a benefit for them."

A small gathering was held in West Chelsea at the Children's Center, at 459 W. 26th St., with 40 neighborhood families enjoying refreshments and participating in a raffle for a dozen of the computer systems. The remaining computers were distributed to the Guild's facilities for needy seniors and operational needs. Attending the drawing from Garrick-Aug were Mr. Kramer, Alicia Uhlman, director of business development, and Leroy Salmon, director of operations. The Hudson Guild staff members attending the event were Janice McGuire, executive director, Kate Sheleg, community outreach coordinator and LeeAnn Scaduto, director of children and youth services at The Children's Center.

The Hudson Guild is a non-profit organization founded in 1895 as a settlement house for the Chelsea neighborhood. Today it is a leading New York outreach organization that provides a wide range of services, including after school programs, youth development programs, counseling services, educational programs, nutritional programs and more.
