The Montclair Foundation awarded a $3,500 grant to Laptop Upcycle, which runs a program that provides free laptops to underserved students in Montclair. The organization uses funding to refurbish laptops donated by local businesses and families.

In Montclair, homework at the middle and high school levels is distributed and graded using computer programs. Though reducing the use of paper, this model puts students without access to a home computer at a disadvantage. The program has already distributed more than 60 laptops to Montclair High School, Buzz Aldrin Middle School and Renaissance Middle School students.
