With help of long-time supporters Virginia and Harvey Kimmel, SouthTech Schools has embarked on a computer fundraising drive entitled, “Put the Tech in SouthTech!” to provide students the technology they need to succeed during the pandemic – and beyond.
The Kimmels have generously offered a lead grant of $100,000 toward the $360,000 needed to make sure every middle school and high school student has a new Chromebook to help with their daily class work. Unfortunately, many currently only have a smartphone or an outdated tablet. We are reaching out to individuals, businesses and the community-at-large to help us raise the necessary funds to meet our goal.
According to the Pew Research Center, about 20 percent of parents say that their children can’t complete their schoolwork because they don’t have access to a computer at home. These concerns are especially prevalent among parents with lower incomes. In fact, about one-third (36%) say it is at least somewhat likely their children will not be able to complete schoolwork because they do not have access to a computer at home.
SouthTech wants to completely reverse this trend through our “Put the Tech in South” campaign. We are incredibly grateful to the Kimmels for their generosity. With their support – and yours – our students are going to go even farther with these new laptops and with the knowledge that someone believes in them and thinks they are worth investing in.
