What is scruff for schools?

Scruff for Schools is a program created by Five Nines that uses scruffy faces to donate tablets 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.

Thanks so much for the iPad donation!  What a pleasure it is to see my student, Kolton, able to have easy access to an iPad!  Technology makes all the difference for Kolton academically, socially, and perhaps, emotionally as well.    Kolton’s use of the IPad has been much like a duck in water: the two just fit together swimmingly.
