Bridging the Gap Between Senior Citizens and Technology

Following the release of his highly anticipated album The Wizrd, international recording artist Future along with his mother Stephanie Jester and sister Tia Wilburn-Anderson, will gift a community of 120 seniors with a newly renovated computer lab. On Wednesday, February 13th, The FreeWishes Foundation in partnership with Big Bethel Village, will transform the underutilized space into a digital hub for senior citizens ages 55 and up. “A Gift of Love” will be revealed just in time for Valentine’s Day. This makeover will provide a positive refresher for current residences in hopes of revitalizing the appreciation of tech-inclusion into their daily lives. The guest list to attend the reveal is now open at info@bcsbliss.com.


The FreeWishes Foundation will be joined by community leaders and corporate partners for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and the official lab reveal. The computer lab will be named in honor of the late Ruby Nell Gates (grandmother of Stephanie Jester), who was the reason in which the foundation was created. The newly redesigned technology hub will feature a fully functional space that will integrate new technology and address the challenges seniors sometimes face with computer literacy.


“It is our goal to empower senior citizens with the ability to confidently utilize computer technology and increase their digital literacy,” said co-founder of The FreeWishes Foundation Stephanie Jester.” The library will feature a modernized interior makeover, with the integration of wifi, new reading literature, desktop computers, a copy and fax machine and printing station. “In order to connect and positively impact our senior community, we have to find ways to bridge the gap between the generations. This modern space will be fundamental in bringing us closer with our gatekeepers of the community”, said co- founder of The FreeWishes Foundation Tia-Wilburn Anderson. The foundation will provide free workshops for seniors that will teach computer literacy and help to ease frustrations with technology.
