The Missouri Hotel homeless shelter is a block from the Askinosie Chocolate factory. It houses about 80 children on any given night. These children previously had no place to study, research, and create. The computer lab was Boyd Principal James Grandon’s idea and dream that he communicated to Shawn Askinosie in 2007. Askinosie Chocolate designed the lab, arranged for installation of all the furniture, acquired the computers, and enlisted the services of a local artist to make the lab inviting and warm. Drury University students along with Mr. Grandon help the children learn computer skills on Wednesday nights. This project was funded by Chocolate University and the generous donations of the Turner Family Foundation, Service World Computer Center, Grooms Office Environments, artist Jessy Linder, and Drury University.
