TAP Donates Computer System to the 5,000th Child

The Technology Access Program, or TAP, reached a milestone on July 17, 2014 as it gave a Loudon County third grader the gift of technology. Standing tall next to her Dell desktop, Annabell Lee may seem shy on the outside, but inside, she's jumping for joy. 

"To think there are 5,000 children throughout east Tennessee who now have access to a computer, who didn't before, and still may not if it wasn't for this program," said TAP Founder and Volunteer, Warren Sanders.
