150 South Bend families receive free computers, internet access
SOUTH BEND, Ind.—Thanks to nonprofit initiative Bridging the Gap, 150 South Bend families received computers and internet on Wednesday.
On Wednesday at the South Bend Technology Resource Center, Bridging the Gap gave away 150 computers and 150 mobile hotspots with three months of unlimited internet service to families and individuals from the South Bend Schools community.
“Being able to do your homework at home is huge. Children and households without a computer and internet at home have to go to a library or stay at school and when those places close, it’s hard to continue doing their homework and research,” said Bryan Mauk with PCs for People.
Families applied for the opportunity and were awarded based on need.
Bridging the Gap is run by PCs for People and Mobile Beacon.
