DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) – Noblis, a science, technology and strategy organization, located in the River District, recently donated $5,000 to the Danville Public Schools Education Foundation.
The donated funds will help to provide assistance to teachers who have incurred unplanned, out-of-pocket expenses due to the change in the delivery of instruction caused by the pandemic.
“This donation is to help teachers continue to do what they do best in any situation, but especially in the challenging times of COVID-19, which [provides] opportunities for their students. Ensuring that a teacher has the materials or supplies needed for their classroom is extremely important. Noblis is honored to be able to partner with the Danville Public Schools Education Foundation to continue our support of Danville Public Schools.”William Franklin, Site Lead for Noblis
Through a competitive grant application process that ended on Jan. 15, 2021, the Noblis Teacher Support Grant was awarded to a total of 19 teachers with Danville Public Schools.
“Noblis has been a steadfast partner in providing resources to our students. Over the years, they have donated financial resources to our Passport Program in our middle schools and gifted surplus computer equipment to the George Washington High School Cyber Patriot Team. We are grateful to Noblis for its continued support of our programs and initiatives.”Anne Moore-Sparks, Director of the Danville Public Schools Education Foundation
