BRIDGE Helps Pay for Laptops for Students at Long Beach City College
One hundred students at Long Beach City College will find it a little easier to take remote learning classes, thanks to the donation of 100 Chromebook laptop computers from the Long Beach Center for Economic Inclusion.
LBCEI is a relatively new partnership developed as a community development corporation. It was part of the City Council-approved Everyone In Implementation Plan, and funded with startup donations from Ninth District City Councilman Rex Richardson's office, Wells Fargo Bank and the city of Long Beach.
The Chromebooks were given to north Long Beach students last week during an event at the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library. BRIDGE Development Partners helped pay for the computers and human-I-T refurbished them.
