TikTok companions Nationwide PTA to assist college students and educators
Tick tack has announced a partnership with the National PTA, a formal organization made up of parents, teachers and staff to facilitate parents' participation in a school. With school closings across the country affecting students and teachers, millions of households have mastered the emerging challenges posed by the COVID 19 pandemic. The social networking company has recognized the importance of continuing educational success for students who are not physically in the classroom.
As part of its larger global effort to give back to communities in the midst of the corona virus, TikTok is working with National PTA to raise $ 2M / £ 1.6M to fund critical K-12 distance education and school support programs to donate food benefits. The funds are used to provide PTAs with resources to meet the critical needs of students, families, teachers, and communities in these times.
“National PTA is grateful to be named as a beneficiary of the TikTok Community Relief Fund. This donation will help us continue to support and stand up for families, schools and communities across the country and to help them overcome the many challenges that COVID-19 has created, ”said Leslie Boggs, President of National PTA .
“PTAs across the country are working more than ever to ensure that our families and school communities are safe, healthy and have what they need. They are currently focusing on social and emotional wellbeing, distance learning and distance learning resources, bridging the digital divide and access to school meals benefits. Thanks to the generous support of TikTok, PTA can significantly increase our efforts in all of these critical areas. "
The social networking company is grateful to the educators who work for us every day and is happy to make an important contribution to the students, teachers and families who rely on TikTok to connect with their communities. TikTok hopes that this donation can help relieve families, students, teachers, administrators and community leaders affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
