SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio got a big back to school present thanks to Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages last week.
CCSWB pledged to donate $50,000 in addition to a new computer lab and student laptops in an effort to support San Antonio students. The computer lab is slated to open next year.
“Access to technology has become a prerequisite for students, particularly due to the evolving pandemic,” said Ada Saenz, Interim CEO for the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio. “Thanks to Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages, members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio will be well-equipped to navigate the digital elements of their academic pathways and succeed in school.”
The effort is part of an initiative that includes donating $1 million in laptops throughout many of the state’s major metropolitan areas that include San Antonio, Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth,
“Today’s students are our world’s next generation of leaders, but so many do not have a computer at home to complete their school assignments,” said Jean Claude Tissot, president of Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages. “As part of our commitment to the San Antonio community, we are thrilled to support the Boys & Girls Club of San Antonio team in their mission to serve students in need.”
