CRCBR is excited to announce our new partnership with Eliminate the Digital Divide (E2D) to help provide laptops for children in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District.

Beginning in just 2013, Eliminate the Divide (E2D) has worked successfully with 118 schools within the Charlotte Mecklenburg School (CMS) system.  As of July 2016, over 1,200 families have bridged the digital divide using laptops, digital access and computer training provided by E2D.

How You Can Help

If you or your tenants have decommissioned computer technology that can be re-purposed for student use, please consider donating to E2D.

For more information or to schedule a pickup, please contact Roger Cobb, CRCBR Community Outreach Chair.
