Willow Hill Heritage and Renaissance Center

Log Number: CAGML-248065-OMLS-20

The Willow Hill Heritage and Renaissance Center will expand internet access and improve educational opportunities for children in Bulloch County, Georgia, who are learning at home during the pandemic and whose families have limited or no access to broadband internet service or digital devices. The museum will ensure that children can check out a laptop computer, have access to Wi-Fi to complete assignments and video meetings with teachers, and can complete their work in an outdoor facility with tables, electricity, and fans. Paid staff members and student volunteers from Georgia Southern University will help with the technology and homework. The project will also benefit community members through a facility re-opening under CDC guidelines and an improved media center that includes desktop computer workstations for job searching, genealogy research, and information sharing.
