Tech grant brings free upgrades to Ben Wilson Senior Heart in Warminster

After losing more than a year of funding due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Ben Wilson Senior Activity Center in Warminster is getting a free technology upgrade worth up to $50,000.

Ray Cline, owner of Libertas Consulting LLC, announced last week the center was chosen out of about 30 applicants for the community improvement program tentatively titled Partnering to Give Back.

New security cameras, a sound system and an expanded wireless network will be among several improvements that could be coming once Libertas and the center hash out the details of the installation.

Members of the Ben Wilson Senior Activities Center join representatives of the Greater BucksMont Chamber of Commerce and Libertas Consulting LLC, of Warminster, last week. The center was awarded $50,000 in tech upgrades to be installed by members of Low Voltage Nation, a nationwide collective of small technology businesses, as part of a joint private technology grant.

Cline said the center was selected by a national group of similar businesses called Low Voltage Nation and the Greater BucksMont Chamber of Commerce for the potential community impact the upgrades could bring.

Libertas, Low Voltage and the chamber began accepting applicants in April for the program aimed at helping local businesses or organizations that benefit the area in some form or another.
