"Everybody has a part in this, and this is a little part of what we can do. But we just want to put it out there and highlight the fact that if you have some of this equipment please, and if you don't need it for the foreseeable future, please, please donate it to those who need it most," Tom Balitewicz, from the Vigo County School Corporation said.
