TULSA, Okla. — With many Oklahoma school districts offering virtual learning amid the pandemic, the Tulsa Latin American Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with local organizations to help students have adequate technology.
The chamber has kicked off the "Remote Learning Tech Drive" to collect new or used laptops, desktop computers and tablets.
Board member Juan Reinoso says the donations will be distributed by Tulsa Public Schools to students in need within the district.
"The disparities in learning for low-income and less socioeconomic families and stuff.. tend to be far more disadvantaged families than higher income families, so to be able to do this is a way of helping them be able to not fall behind more," explains Reinoso.
Donation items can be dropped off at two locations until the end of October:
1155 S. Elgin Avenue
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
308 S. Kenosha Ave.
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
