Every Dollar Counts Because Every Student Counts!
The Education Foundation of Palm Beach County is coordinating a fundraising effort in order to provide computer devices to the School District of Palm Beach County for eligible students so that they are able to continue their education through remote learning.
Thank you to those who donated the appropriate devices to local Office Depot locations! Now that the device drive pick-ups are complete, we will continue to raise funds towards the purchase of more devices so that more students will receive the access to remote learning that they need. The School District will be in charge of delivering these devices, and we hope to overwhelm them with the amount of devices we can obtain through your generosity!
It is easy for you to donate! You can Text to Give by texting DEVICEDRIVE to 41444 and making a donation from your phone. A donation of $275.00 will provide a device for one student.
Remember that Comcast is offering free internet access, and you can learn more from their website. In addition, Comcast has made available its Xfinity Wifi hotspots to anyone that needs them for free and is giving all customers unlimited data for no additional charge.
Education Foundation James S. Gavrilos comments: “When our backs are up against a wall, the true spirit of America reveals itself. Palm Beach County is a generous community with committed business partners. Together, we will weather this storm.” Thank you to all who have come together to take care of our students! We salute you and hope that many more will join the cause. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS, BECAUSE EVERY STUDENT COUNTS!
