Donate a New Chromebook

With so much uncertainty around what going “back to school” will look like this fall, we want our kiddos to be prepared to learn from anywhere. By donating a Chromebook, you can provide the children of Genesis with stability and access to education at their fingertips. We kindly request that all laptop donations be newly purchased items rather than gently-used.
