The Live Grit SOARS community is stepping up to help bridge the digital divide for CPS students. The inequality of access to education for many Chicago Public School students is more apparent now than ever with thousands and thousands of students still in need of access to e-learning.
We are stepping in by raising money to provide Chromebooks and computers to Live Grit SOARS athletes, youth of the Lawndale Christian Legal Center, and youth in foster care. As of April 13, 2020, we have distributed 28 Chromebooks but we still have a waitlist of over 45 youth with the need growing everyday.
Every dollar raised will go directly to acquiring digital devices for Chicago Public School students. *We want to bridge the gap now and in the future so students will keep the computers.
Here'is how you can help:
1. Donate money
*Until April 24, 2020 we have partnered with Yoga 2.0 and for every $50 you donate you will be entered in to a drawing to win 1 of 5 $50 Yoga 2.0 gift card.
2. Donate a slightly used digital device. More information here.
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of these amazing youth!
