Verizon to help bridge digital divide in schools with trade-in offer

Monday 12 March 2018 | 08:54 CET | News
Verizon will donate USD 1 per eligible phone trade-in up to USD 4 million to DonorsChoose.org to help provide technology like tablets, laptops, 3D printers, VR gear, and other emerging technologies to under-resourced schools across the nation. The scope of the campaign is to help youth become more acquainted with technology and prepare to obtain jobs that require technology skills. Donations will be made through DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit organisation that empowers public school teachers across the country to request much-needed materials and experiences for their students.
