American schools face an uncertain future. This fall, many students will be learning at least partially from home, yet questions remain regarding the feasibility of remote learning. One major concern is that not all students have the resources to participate in an online environment. To make e-learning more accessible, radio stations are rallying listeners to make donations to get much-needed laptops into students’ hands. 

iHeartMedia’s radio stations are in the middle of a Chromebooks For Kids fundraising campaign. To help fund Chromebook purchases for students, listeners can text SCHOOL to 62644 or visit 

In Denver, KOSI 101.1 is giving away three new Chromebooks each weekday. And in Greenville, South Carolina, Summitmedia’s radio stations are partnering with T-Mobile and Metro By T-Mobile to give away 1,000 bags stuffed with school supplies.

Radio plays a valuable service role and has stepped up to bring communities together in times of need. For more information on how your brand can utilize the power of radio, contact SMI today.
