Northern Nevada-based lender donates $10,000 and more than 60 gently used computers to Education Alliance’s laptop drive
(CARSON CITY, Nev.) – Greater Nevada Credit Union (GNCU), a Carson City-based credit union serving northern Nevada, has donated $10,000 to Education Alliance as part of its laptop drive. GNCU collaborated with Education Alliance and Reno Cigar Lions Club for this donation in celebration of GNCU’s new Vista branch location.
On top of the donation, GNCU collected gently used laptops and computer equipment for Washoe County School District students in need. GNCU collected and donated 58 laptops and 10 desktops to county students.
“It’s estimated that 11,000 students in Washoe County don’t have access to a computer at home,” said Kendall Inskip, executive director of Education Alliance. “Students need this technology to continue their learning, and it’s so important to us to be able to support these students.”
GNCU presented the donation check to Education Alliance in a ceremony on Nov. 6 at GNCU’s Vista branch in Sparks, Nev. Danny DeLaRosa, chief development officer at Greater Nevada Credit Union presented the check to Inskip who accepted on behalf of Education Alliance.
“GNCU wants to ensure that no student is left behind during these challenging times, and we’re honored to join other local businesses helping to bridge the technology gap for students,” DeLaRosa said. “We were thrilled to have our members join us in the fundraising and gathering dozens of computers to help students thrive in their online learning.”
