Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain is happy to announce a donation of 86 Archos 5 Tablets, charging station and accessories from Tryon Palace, valued at $16,000. These tablets will assist club members with their education in history, literature, math and technology.

Tryon Palace previously used the tablets as GPS devices for guiding visitors around the historical grounds. Since smartphones have become a replacement for most, Tryon Palace decided to donate the unused tablets to an organization of their choice.

IT Director Rob Jones led the quest stating, “Boys & Girls Clubs can definitely benefit from using these tablets. Kids will see how awesome these are because they can use educational apps, even download school books to help them with homework.”

The presentation of the tablets was held at the North Carolina History Center.

Regional Vice President Andrea Nix said, “It will definitely help our kids, starting with ‘Power Hour’ homework time and to expand our tech programs. We can’t thank Tryon Palace enough for this.” These devices will be divided throughout the seven counties the organization covers.

The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. There are 17 Clubs throughout Pitt, Beaufort, Lenoir, Martin, Greene, Carteret, and Craven Counties serving approximately 1,400 members daily and 3,600 annually. For more information, visit the Clubs online at www.bgccp.com or call 355-2345
