On March 18, the Facebook Papillion Data Center announced 18 local nonprofits and schools who will receive a Community Action Grant.
The Facebook Community Action Grants program was created to address needs in Sarpy County, putting the power of technology to use for community benefit, connecting people online or off and improving STEM education.
This is the second year that Sarpy County nonprofits and schools have been eligible for the grant program.
Springfield Platteview Community Schools was awarded three separate grants totaling $44,500.
The three grants will allow the district to expand its STEAM curriculum through the purchase of graphing calculators, a Music Lab Workstation and a new laser engraver with related technology.
