Donations, fundraiser to replace stolen computers at Wahiawa Middle School
Donations are coming in to help replace some of the 27 Chromebooks that were stolen from Wahiawa Middle School, according to Sen. Donovan Dela Cruz.
WAHIAWA, Hawaii - Donations are coming in to help replace some of the 27 Chromebooks that were stolen from Wahiawa Middle School, according to Sen. Donovan Dela Cruz.
The senator and the Leilehua Alumni and Community Association will be launching a fundraising drive to raise additional funds to replace the remaining stolen items.
Sen. Dela Cruz is an alumnus of Wahiawa Middle.
“As schools move forward with an education based in science, technology, engineering, and math, the right equipment is vital to building their skills,” said Sen. Dela Cruz. “The Leilehua Alumni and Community Association will play a critical role as schools make this transition. Whether it be donating computers or receiving grants for educational programs, the Association exists to assist all schools in the Leilehua complex.”
More funds are needed to replace the remaining Chromebooks, a MacBook Pro laptop and an LCD projector that were stolen from the school on Sept. 28.
The Leilehua Alumni and Community Association is asking the community to make a small donation so they can continue to support our students. More information on the fundraising drive is forthcoming.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Honolulu Police Department. Police are still seeking leads on the suspects wanted for the burglary.
