Athens-Clarke County schools open next Tuesday with 3 months of virtual learning - but about 2500 students do not have access to WiFi. We believe that every child should have access to education. At $60 per family, the immediate goal for the drive is to $80,000. Contributions can be made to the Athens Community Foundation and are tax deductible.
One impact of online school is many kids don't get the daily snacks that the schools normally provide. We are working with the Northeast Georgia Food Bank on a snack drive to provide local kids with healthy snacks (ACC schools are providing breakfast and lunch).
