Wal-Mart Donates iPad
Hi, my name is Jennifer Diane Turner, and I am currently a University of Central Oklahoma student volunteer conducting my Infant Field Study at Infant Crisis Services.
As I worked one-on-one with Clients and their parents, I discovered a need for advanced translation services. I immediately began to brain storm how I could possibly expand translation services as we face the challenge of locating translators. I decided it would best to use an iPad for communication purposes. The iPad would be used to communicate with families by utilizing a voice-activated translation application.
Store Manager Chris Mcafee of Wal-Mart Supercenter in Edmond, OK, recently approved a $500 Education Grant that will go toward the purchase of an iPad for Infant Crisis Services.
I would like to personally send a special thank you to both Chris Mcafee and the Wal-Mart Foundation for their contribution to my Field Study Project. Your donation will make a world of a difference at Infant Crisis Services, and I thank you for your support!
