Local school needs your help to score new computers

The Anne Frank Ele­ment­ary School fac­ulty and staff are try­ing once again to win new com­puters for stu­dents.

Any­one who wants to help the school get $50,000 for some new high-tech gear just has to go to a Clorox Web site to vote for Anne Frank. The Bustleton school just missed last year in get­ting the on­line votes needed to win a $10,000 Pep­si Re­fresh Everything Grant, but staffers are keen to try again for an even big­ger prize this year.

To vote for the school, go to ht­tps://power­ab­right­fu­ture.clorox.com/ and fol­low the in­struc­tions.

“We wanted to ap­ply for the same grant this year, but we found out that Pep­si is no longer run­ning the Re­fresh Everything Grant,” said Mike Tauber, school coun­selor. “In our search for new and cre­at­ive ways to im­prove our school, we found that Clorox was run­ning a sim­il­ar type grant pro­gram that we could ap­ply for.”

So, Anne Frank is go­ing after that grant. There’s a need, Tauber said.

“Many of our cur­rent com­puters are no longer work­ing, and most of them are un­able to sup­port the edu­ca­tion­al soft­ware that we use for the stu­dents,” he said.

Vot­ing began Monday and ends Dec. 12.

Tauber said Anne Frank’s sup­port­ers may log in­to the Clorox Web site or text in votes. To text send PAB­F0858 to 95248, Tauber said. ••
