The Education Partnership is trying to fill the gap by providing pens, pencils and other supplies to teachers!
As schoolwork has shifted online, more than 36,000 local students have not been able to continue their schooling without internet access and a wifi-equipped device. To bridge this gap, Jerome Bettis and his Bus Stops Here Foundation, The Education Partnership and Computer Reach launched the “Connecting Kids” summer-long technology drive.
We are asking companies and individuals to donate used laptops or make a financial contribution to help support the mission of connecting ALL students before they return to school this fall.
Drop off locations are located at The Education Partnership [281 Corliss Street Pittsburgh, PA 15220] and Computer Reach [1 DRV Drive, Wilkinsburg, PA 15221].
For monetary donations, please text BUS to 71777 or donate here.
