Anne Frank School stumps for votes to vie for computers

The fac­ulty and staff at Anne Frank Ele­ment­ary School are hop­ing North­east res­id­ents will help the Bowl­er Street school get $10,000 to buy some new classroom com­puters.

They’re not ask­ing for cash, just an on­line re­com­mend­a­tion. Just go to Pep­sico’s Web site —­­nefrank — to vote for the school, said school coun­selor Mike Tauber. Once signed up on the site, a pro­cess that takes only a few minutes, any­one can vote for Anne Frank’s pro­ject once a day all through Decem­ber. 

Anne Frank needs new com­puters be­cause the equip­ment now in use is old and out­dated, Tauber said in an e-mail to the North­east Times.

In 2010, Pep­si set aside $20 mil­lion the soft drink maker would have spent on Su­per Bowl ad­vert­ising to sup­port com­munity pro­jects. The com­pany will spend the same amount this year. People with pro­jects ap­ply on­line and sev­er­al are chosen ran­domly to be fea­tured each month. Each of the top 15 vote-get­ters will be awar­ded $10,000 this month. The same goes for ap­plic­ants for $5,000, $25,000 and $50,000 grants. ••
