Giant Eagle and Citizens Bank are teaming up to ensure students have the supplies they need this year.

Do you know that more than 55,000 students in our region DON’T have the necessary school supplies?  Remote learning makes this challenge even greater.  Right now there are many low-income families and districts that are unable to provide laptops or computers for students.

The Education Partnership wants to ensure that they have the supplies they need this fall as remote learning is on the horizon for some and laptops and tablets are a resource used outside of remote learning.

In honor of the 30th Anniversary of Giant Eagle and Citizens Bank partnership they are supporting an initiative to make the Education Partnerships goal possible .

There are multiple ways to give.  

  • Donate an old or new laptop or tablet to a Citizens Bank location within a Giant Eagle between 8/17 – 9/13
  • Text Learn2020 to 91999 and donate
  • Visit theeducationpartnership.org/learn to donate

Donated devices will be refurbished and given to students who fall into an area of need. Donated devices will have hard drives wiped and a new operating system and software added by Computer Reach.
