Virtue Foundation Sponsors and Deploys Education Support
Following the unprecedented devastation of Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005, Virtue Foundation rapidly deployed a team of mental health professionals to help the victims cope with the crisis and connect with critical social support and resources. Once the situation stabilized, the Foundation began working with local schools and partnering with corporations such as Apple and Microsoft to revitalize the educational system, resulting in a donation of $1.2 million in notebook computers, software and hardware to local schools.
