SCS begins charitable contribution program; first recipients announced


Software Consulting Services, LLC (SCS) today announced that it has donated $2,500 to The Bucks County Herald Foundation and $1,000 to the Southern Lehigh High School Computer Science Club.

“I am pleased to announce the start of the SCS charitable contribution program with these first two awards. The goal of the program is to help fund community-based journalism and promote the study of Computer Science at our local high schools,” according to Kurt Jackson, owner of SCS.

The Bucks County Herald Foundation owns and operates The Bucks County Herald, a weekly community newspaper based in Doylestown, PA. The paper was founded by Joseph and Bridget Wingert twenty years ago. “The Bucks County Herald represents the best in community reporting, and nobody covers the region’s arts, social, political, and government events more thoroughly,” says Jackson. “Theirs is a model for sustainable local journalism.”

At the same time, SCS has contributed $1,000 to Southern Lehigh High School’s Computer Science Club. The student-run club has 28 members and provides an easy-to-use computer science program with activities designed for students with little to no programming experience. The club’s fall term project involves blockchain, cryptography, and hardware optimization.

“I hope to find other programs like the one at The Bucks County Herald and Southern Lehigh High School to contribute to and endorse,” Jackson states.
