What is scruff for schools?

Scruff for Schools is a program created by Five Nines that uses scruffy faces to donate technology to children with special needs.

Why scruff for schools?

James (a Five Nines co-founder) has a son, Kaden, who lives with cerebral palsy. Kaden greatly benefits from the use of an iPad; which showed the Five Nines Family the need for a program like this. By combining No-Shave November with donating technology to children with special needs, Scruff for Schools was born.

We cannot thank-you for you kindness and generosity towards the success of this student at LPS.  Kolton has faced many obstacles in his life at a young age but his passion to be a good student and his motivation to overcome his disabilities shines through each day he comes to school.  The iPad with a word prediction app has allowed him to compete with peers at his grade level and produce a 5th grade level of work independently.   I wish you could have seen the dance he performed when I showed him the new iPad.
