New Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Calais Campbell and his CRC Foundation have partnered with Baltimore law firm Cohen & Dwin to provide new laptops for 100 disadvantaged high school students.
The new laptops will be distributed by the YMCA of Central Maryland so the students can successfully participate in distance learning during the COVID-19 shutdown.
A $10,000 donation from the CRC Foundation was matched by Cohen & Dwin, which was founded in Baltimore in 1977 and now has offices on Patterson and Greenmount avenues. The firm has previously been a major contributor to causes such as Echo Resource Development, the Baltimore County African-American Cultural Festival, the Soul Stroll Walk for Breast Cancer and many more community initiatives.
Campbell, who came to the Ravens March 19 from the Jacksonville Jaguars for a fifth-round pick in the recent 2020 NFL Draft, has extensive community work through the CRC Foundation. That work earned him the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award this past season.
The YMCA of Central Maryland will distribute the laptops to students in need at Baltimore City Schools where they serve as the partnering lead agency.
