We mourn the loss of Benevolent team member Kyle Kehus. Gifts to help someone in need will honor his legacy.

Jeanne

I am the Education Coordinator at YouthBuild Lake County. My work involves helping young people obtain their high school diploma online so that they can become gainfully employed and provide a sustainable future for themselves and their families. By Benevolent providing my students with a Google Chromebook it will enable them to further their education and to help students explore the world and build skills that promote learning. Many of my students lack access to the Internet and computers, which in today’s society have become a necessity. It would be a joy to be able to provide them with the opportunity to work on their high school diploma outside of class.
