FENNVILLE, Mich. — A Fennville mother is on a mission to get laptops to every student who needs one for remote learning.

If you or anyone in your family received a new device for Christmas, Kim Ludwig is asking for you to consider donating the old devices no longer needed.

Ludwig's mission began when her daughter, a student at Fennville Public Schools, began remote learning. She didn't have a device, which prompted Ludwig to start her own laptop collection.

"In talking with some of these mothers, they are really suffering. They have maybe three kids and one device, maybe four kids and one device or they have no devices," said Ludwig. "It’s really just making their life so much easier to be able to give each of their kids a device and have them be able to remote in to their school."

If you have a device that you would like to donate, they ask you to include the pass code or your phone number so they can reset the tablet or laptop.

Ludwig is also looking for any businesses that would like to serve as a drop-off site in the Grand Rapids area.
