Flint Energies donates Chromebooks to rural schools

Flint Energies and its philanthropic arm, the Flint Energies Foundation, bridged the digital divide by donating 200 Chromebooks to six rural school districts. The COVID-19 pandemic revealed how rural families are often at a disadvantage in a virtual learning environment. The majority have poor internet service and many cannot afford a computer to access online classrooms. That is where Flint Energies and its Foundation stepped in.
The Flint Energies Foundation held an emergency meeting last month to approve the purchase of more than $90,000 worth of Chromebooks to be donated to Crawford, Macon, Peach, Schley, Talbot and Taylor County school systems.
