ST. PAUL, MN — To help make tablets more accessible for schools on a tight budget, 3M is partnering with Digital Wish, a non-profit organization that works to outfit classrooms with the latest technology, according to a press release.
Through the 3M Screens for Schools grants program, 3M Screen Protectors — with the help of parents, teachers and school administrators — will donate up to $25,000 to Digital Wish, the release stated.
According to the release, the funds will then be awarded to one school so that it may equip its classrooms with new tablets and accompanying 3M Screen Protectors.
To reach its goal of donating up to $25,000 to Digital Wish, 3M Screen Protectors is encouraging parents to show their support for 3M Screens for Schools at Facebook.com/3MScreens, the release noted.
For every eligible person who shows his/her support, 3M will donate $1 to Digital Wish and an additional $1 for every person who shares the 3M Screens for Schools message on Facebook, the release added.
"We know how difficult it can be for schools to be able to afford new technology, which makes it even more important for that technology to last as long as possible," said Nicola Stevens, business manager of Mobile Interactive Solutions Division.
"We are excited to be partnering with Digital Wish on this program to help teachers and students receive new tablets to enhance the educational experience," Stevens added.
