The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (www.cedia.org) will donate top-of-the-line training equipment to Motivate our Minds (MOM), a non-profit organization in Muncie, Ind.
MOM is an after-school tutoring and enrichment program designed to help elementary and middle school students achieve academic and personal success. In a non-threatening environment, students can build self-esteem, develop character and learn valuable life skills. MOM provides after-school extra-curricular activities for children grades one through eight.
CEDIA will be donating products from its members including a Runco International projector, a Stewart film screen and other electronic equipment to help MOM in the learning process.
"CEDIA is pleased to take part in an organization like MOM," said Ray Lepper, CEDIA president. "With professional-quality training equipment, the children will have a better opportunity to learn and reach their goals."
Along with CEDIA, Oprah Winfrey and Ball State students are taking part in MOM's mission. MOM has recently embarked on an expansion campaign to improve both the facility and services. CEDIA's equipment will be used in the new media room being created.
