Colonial Pipeline of Meridian has made a donation to a class at Northeast Elementary School.
The company also made a commitment of $1,000 each year for the next five years. That money is to be used for computer equipment for the classrooms at Northeast.
"Some of our benchmarks that we cover are research skills, creative writing, and creating presentations that go along with our research," said Stacey Purvis of Northeast Elementary. "The computers are a vital part of that."
"We just like to support the communities in which we live," said Steven Purvis of Colonial Pipeline. "Education is top priority for Colonial and the children in the communities that we serve."
This year's donation has already funded the purchase of four laptop computers, a color printer, and a wireless access point for Purvis' Qwest class.
