[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Two organizations providing services to those especially vulnerable during COVID-19 have been awarded SEEC Resiliency Fund grants: Literacy NY and
Jay’s Day Care.

Literacy NY: Jim Becker, president MIDTEL & INOC Datacenters, chair of the SEEC Resiliency Fund and
SEEC founding member; Lisa Cardilli, executive director, Literacy NY Fulton, Montgomery & Schoharie; and
Eric Stein, president Cobleskill Regional Hospital and founding SEEC Board member.

SEEC Resiliency Funds, along with other recent donations, have helped restore Literacy NY’s Schoharie County-wide program. In recognition of its workforce development impacts, SEEC’s Enterprise Investment Committee recommended the SEEC Board Directors approve a grant to underwrite the continuation of the local program and to launch a new initiative that matches local mentors with school district families having difficulty with the COVID transition to at-home learning.
