In addition to supporting an employee volunteerism program and awarding Classroom of the Future Technology Grants each year from 2006-2011, Tierney Brothers, Inc. partners with one organization each year to provide technology and services to those in need. Our goal is to leverage interactive technology to provide a better quality of life through inspired collaboration and improved performance.
In January, 2013 Tierney Brothers partnered with Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and donated a SMART Table to the Sibling Play Area at Children’s – Minneapolis. The touch screen device, aimed at early education students, will allow siblings of patients at Children’s to play, collaborate and learn.
Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota believes in treating the whole family, not just the patient who has been admitted, and is always seeking out innovative ways to incorporate technology into the care model and the services provided to patients and families. The addition of the SMART Table will allow siblings of patients to learn and collaborate with one another via technology, allowing Children’s to offer more educational opportunities for them. Over time, Children’s hopes to develop customized curricula for the SMART Table.
Tierney Brothers is proud to have supported the following organizations:
