Greensboro, NC -- Close to 80 Hunter Elementary families received free home computers on Tuesday.
"I couldn't believe it really," said LaShonda Stubbs, a parent.
"When I was in school...this was unheard of," said Karena Alston, parent.
It was computers everywhere inside the media center at Hunter Elementary. The school was able to give training and desktop computers with the help of a partnership with Kramden Institute, Inc.
"I think by having a computer in their household is just going to tie in what they are working on in the classroom with thechnology and apply it to what they are doing at home," said Carie Delmariani from Kramden Institute, Inc. of Raleigh.
Parents left with big smiles, along with their new computer equipment.
"The value for the family is that they will be able to have some independence. I know some of the families have to go to library to use thechnology," said Michelle Thompson, Hunter Elem. Principal.
The whole process took parents about one hour and a half. This included a computer training course. The computer equipment, even came with lifetime tech support.
Officials with Kramden told News 2, they are always looking for donations and volunteers.
The selection of the students were based on criteria set by a grant and priorty was given to hard working Hunter students.
