The Pittsburgh Penguins and Duolingo have together donated 35 laptop computers to Circles Greater Pittsburgh for distribution to families in our community whose children would not otherwise have access to online learning during school closures due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"We are so grateful to the Pittsburgh Penguins and Duolingo for their generous contributions to the continued education of our community's children during this crisis," said Tammy Thompson, executive director of Circles Greater Pittsburgh. "Families who have received these laptops are extremely thankful, and so are we."
"As a company with its headquarters in East Liberty, we're happy to support Circles, an organization that is doing important and impactful work to help people and families in this community get out of poverty," said Michaela Kron, Lead PR Manager at Duolingo.
"It's even more important during this challenging time, with classrooms being closed, for us to do our part and help support families in need - and we encourage our partners to consider doing the same" said David Morehouse, president and CEO of the Penguins.
