AT&T and Human I-T Donate 50 Laptops to Danville Nonprofit

Overview
As part of our nationwide commitment to help bridge the digital divide and homework gap, AT&T is supporting Human I-T to provide  Danville Church & Community Tutorial Program with 50 refurbished laptop computers.  Danville will provide these laptops to local students so they can access the digital resources they need to succeed in online learning.

“I’ve been impressed with the work of the Danville Church & Community Tutorial Program for years. Their team is doing great things to help our children get the tools and support they need for success.   Thanks to AT&T and Human I-T for making these laptops available to the kids in this program.” – Virginia Delegate Danny Marshall.

Danville Church & Community Tutorial Program will distribute the laptop computers to various community learning centers that are set up in the Danville region.  Currently the Danville Church & Community Program has 31 active sites and expects to grow to 50 sites when school starts in the fall of 2022.

This program is the latest contribution within the AT&T Connected Learning initiative, created as part of our companywide $2 billion commitment from 2021 – 2023 to address the digital divide through investments in digital literacy tools, education resources, broadband technology, low-cost internet service, and computers, to help today’s learners succeed inside and outside of the classroom.

“The Danville Public Schools is grateful for such a generous donation to our students. The Danville Church & Community Tutorial Program continues to impact the learning loss due to the pandemic. This support from Human I-T and AT&T will benefit our students for years to come.” – Dr. Angela Hairston, superintendent, Danville Public Schools.

We know the pandemic heightened the challenges faced by the millions of students nationwide who currently lack the connectivity needed for online learning. That’s why we’re proud to collaborate with organizations like Human I-T and Danville Church & Community Tutorial Program to help close the homework gap for the most vulnerable students in the Danville area.
