SWC, Microsoft and Alain Locke Charter School Partner to Spread Holiday Cheer
SWC has partnered with Microsoft and Alain Locke Charter School to spread cheer this season to local professionals and holiday shoppers alike in Oak Brook, IL. Fifty students from Alain Locke Charter School’s All-Star Choir and Band traveled from their campus in Chicago’s East Garfield Park to Oak Brook for a performance of holiday songs at SWC Technology Partners headquarters, followed by an encore at the Microsoft Store at Oakbrook Center for staff and customers to enjoy.
This holiday season isn’t the first time SWC, Microsoft and Alain Locke have come together. In 2012, SWC led an initiative with Microsoft to transform the school’s entire technology infrastructure. Microsoft provided the school with new software while SWC donated new hardware and consultative services. Since 2011, SWC has partnered with Alain Locke on initiatives to enhance the lives of the students, providing solutions and IT expertise to progress the school’s educational technology and infrastructure, ensuring Alain Locke stays competitive with today’s scholastic demands. SWC has also become part of the school community by participating in various fundraising and volunteer activities throughout the year.
As a gesture of appreciation each year, the Alain Locke All-Star Choir and Band visit the SWC offices in Oak Brook to sing holiday songs for the entire building to enjoy. This has become a tradition we look forward to each and every year.
