DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- A program is in the works to help students without computers or internet access.
Some of the kids in this category also don’t have essential school supplies to complete packet work.
The Dothan Education Foundation’s Supply Emergency Program will raise funds to provide those prepackaged supplies for students in need.
Larry Blumberg and Associates and Wayne Farms have committed to helping get 1,000 packets together.
Dothan Education Foundation will then fundraise with the community for packets that are still needed.
“I know that our teachers will feel like it’s less of a burden on them and also to our community. We have a lot of people that are hurting, who lose jobs. This will hopefully be one less stress that they have to think about,” says DEF executive director Lindsey Fountain.
A $10 donation can help supply two students with packets.
