    Make a Difference in the Lives of Underprivileged Kids by Bridging the Digital Divide

    #ConnectingKids

    Last week, Jerome Bettis received a call from someone within the Pittsburgh Steelers organization about 60 students from a school just south of Pittsburgh that were unable to complete their school assignments during the COVID-19 pandemic because they did not have access to technology. This broke our hearts, so we set out on a mission to raise funds to purchase wifi-equipped laptops for each student. In the first 24 hours, we were able to do so, however, we received countless phones calls and emails about other students in the same situation. Therefore, we are continuing our mission of #ConnectingKids, so we can put laptops in as many less fortunate student's hands as possible!!

    Since Jerome founded the Bus Stops Here Foundation in 1997, it has been his passion to bridge the technology gap between affluent children and the less fortunate. Even as technology becomes more affordable and internet access seems increasingly ubiquitous, the need has grown immensely for inner-city students and those in rural areas. 

    We’ve set a goal to raise $100,000 for our foundation’s mission. We’ve seen that even a $6 dollar donation can make a difference in a child’s life, but during this time, we are striving to go even further! 

    We thank you for your generosity and for being our teammate. We know that together, we can make a great impact!

    The Jerome Bettis Bus Stops Here Foundation has been dedicated to changing the lives of children in the Pittsburgh and Detroit area for over two decades. Previously, we have been successfully fundraising our charity for youth through individual donor initiatives. We encourage anybody who wants to be involved to donate.
