Facebook Awards $125,000 In Mountain Grants
Staff from Facebook dropped in on a mountain classroom to give them quite a big surprise. The Forest City data center director delivered a $15,000 check to Mount Vernon-Ruth Elementary School. The money will buy 15 Macbook laptop computers for the students. The principal says the laptops will help get the kids comfortable with technology. The check was one of 15 grants given out by Facebook to county non-profits and organizations. This is the third year they've done it, aiming to give a boost to groups that use technology to better the community.
