has received a large donation of flash drives.

Those flash drives have been loaded with school-related work for kids and have been distributed throughout the county.

"Our students didn't have to have Internet access to get the same information. So that was our way of trying to provide some equity of the information that we're putting out," said Rob Arnold, Amherst County Public Schools superintendent.

In part because of all the donations, school administration says they have enough to fill their need.
