Second Life Mac Responds to the Digital Divide

April 30, 2020

Did you know that 1 in 5 Chicago children below the age of 18 do not have access to broadband internet right now? Recent findings released by Kids First Chicago and The Metropolitan Planning Council in a report called Digital Equity in Education in the Coronavirus Era show that too many students still do not have the tools to participate in Chicago Public Schools’ new remote learning plan.

When Second Life Mac, an Apple device sellback company, found out that Pitch In families were directly impacted, they reached out to “pitch in” with us. The Second Life Mac team generously donated 50 iPads with 128gb of storage and Wifi+Cellular capabilities to Pitch In. Pictured above (from right) are Second Life Mac CEO Scott Pauga, WFF Director of Program Janene Ingram, and Kerry Wood himself picking up the devices from the team’s Skokie-based headquarters.

Thank you, Second Life Mac, for your unwavering support!
