That gauntlet of lemonade stands set up on Davidson’s streets on Saturday really delivered, and that means computers for local school kids who need them. Organizers with E3D (Eliminate Davidson’s Digital Divide) said Sunday night the effort raised $3,134 – the equivalent of about 10 new or 30 refurbished computers.
The nonprofit E3D estimates there are 50 students at Davidson Elementary School alone who don’t have the advantage of a home computer with an internet connection. Founded in February by town residents, the group is working with public schools in Davidson and Cornelius as well as the Ada Jenkins Center to obtain computers and provide technical support.
