Helping Hands: Surprising Students With Free Laptops

As we dive into the new school year, Easterns Automotive Group teamed up with 7News to make a remarkable impact on the local community. This time, we set our sights on Allenwood Elementary School in Prince George’s County. With the educational landscape evolving rapidly, access to digital resources has become crucial for students. Recognizing this need, we decided to surprise Allenwood Elementary School with a generous donation of much-needed laptops through the 7News Helping Hands initiative.

Principal Shawna Fagbuyi couldn’t stress enough how critical these laptops are for the success of their students. In today’s world, learning extends beyond the classroom, and these laptops will serve as a gateway to a wealth of knowledge. Whether used within the classroom or at home, they offer invaluable tools for both students and their families.

“These laptops will be phenomenal for our students. We have opportunities for them to engage in interventions at home; we use computers inside the classroom; so this will really give our students an opportunity to have their own devices at home that do not belong to the school and that they can share with their families,” Fagbuyi expressed.

The surprise didn’t just leave the students excited; it left them nearly speechless. Known for their spirited Wildcats mascot, the students showed their enthusiasm with an impressive roar. However, when the laptops were unveiled, the room was filled with awe and appreciation.

With the school year officially underway, these laptops are set to become indispensable tools for Allenwood Elementary School students. At Easterns Automotive Group, we’re committed to empowering our local communities and helping students access the resources they need to thrive in the digital age of learning. Education is the key to a brighter future, and we’re proud to support the educational journey of these young minds.
