United Way of West Tennessee is hosting a drive from Sept. 14 through Sept. 25. and is accepting gently used devices for students in school districts around West Tennessee who lack access to virtual classrooms.
Several of the school districts around West TN have opted for distance learning instead of bringing students back into traditional classrooms. While this is undoubtedly a safer option, it also poses other challenges to overcome. United Way recently provided 212 T-Mobile Hotspot devices to Jackson-Madison County School System for families in need of internet connectivity. And, they are now promoting a drive to help with other devices.
