Dawgs For Pups - WiFi Fund Donate Dawgs For Pups - WiFi Fund will provide internet access through mobile hotspots for children in kindergarten through eighth grade in the Clarke County School District. As school districts nationwide have moved to full-time or part-time distance learning environments, making sure that students have access to technology is more critical than ever. It is essential that we work to bridge the digital divide and help ensure all students can continue learning, even while outside the traditional educational atmosphere. In these times of uncertainty and evolving work/school environments, a top priority is that our school district provides a safe and secure distance learning environment. Continuity of education, as well as digital equity, is a must. It is more important than ever to make sure we are all connected and prepared. Every student needs equal access to educational resources to succeed academically. We are seeking donations to help support the more than 1,000 families in Athens-Clarke County who do not have the internet access needed for online learning. • For $20, donors can sponsor a family for one month. • For $60, donors can sponsor a family for the fall semester.
