Arts Now Foundation donates technology to 300 local students

AUGUSTA, Georgia (WRDW / WAGT) – 300 Richmond County students were given their own laptops and Wi-Fi hotspots Wednesday. A total of four different schools were donated the technology. All of this is thanks to the Arts Now Foundation.

The students receiving this technology are from Willis Foreman Elementary, Hephzibah Elementary, Hephzibah High, and Goshen Elementary.

Families talked about the importance of having your own hotspots and being able to improve learning for the children.

“I think this is really important because it will be so easy for the kids to go to school, study, get tutoring, and get extra help,” said Tiffiney Neal, a mother whose family received the donation.

She also talked about how that would really help when her kids go to college since they already have a laptop to work on.
