Students are in need of laptops and tablets this school year more than ever due to distance learning.

King David's Masonic Lodge of San Luis Obispo is helping address that need by working with local organizations to provide laptops to children in need.

The lodge is partnering with the San Luis Coastal Education Foundation and Stand Strong to kick off their inaugural laptop drive.

Community members can drop off their used laptops at any of the three drop-off locations in San Luis Obispo County or schedule a pick-up.

  • Cafe Roma (1020 Railroad Ave, San Luis Obispo)
  • Central Coast Surfboards (855 Marsh St, San Luis Obispo)
  • Sunshine Health Foods (415 Morro Bay Blvd, Morro Bay)

The master of King David's Masonic Lodge said this is one way to help close the opportunity gap for students in need.

"In this time of social distancing its really important for people to come together around a common goal and I think this goal, this laptop drive, is something that people can really get behind," said Andrew Brown, master of King David's Masonic Lodge.

The laptop drive runs through November 8th.

King David's 209 in San Luis Obispo has been serving the community since 1870.
