SAP National Security Services has announced a $20K donation to help Fairfax, Va.-based public schools address students’ distance learning technology needs.
The company said Monday its donation to the Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools aims to prepare students for internet-based distance learning amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Donated funds will finance purchases of laptops, wireless routers and other supplies that will allow students to connect with learning environments from home.
“There’s never been a more critical time for business leaders to step up to help narrow the digital divide for these young learners,” says Mark Testoni, CEO at SAP NS2 and a 2020 Wash100 Award recipient.
The company also agreed to give $10K per month to food banks in locations inhabited by SAP NS2 employees.
