The UpTop Denton Mission: Helping to close the digital divide by giving laptops to college-bound high school students in Denton, TX.
Our History: In 2016/17 we had a modest goal to raise enough money to buy two laptops for college-bound seniors at Ryan High School. We blew that goal out of the water and came together to raise enough money to buy SIX laptops! In 2017/18 UpTop began a partnership with Denton Evening Rotary and thanks to their muscle power and big hearts the Winter Warmer raised enough funds to supply 18 laptops – one laptop for every qualifying senior that applied. In 2018/19 Denton Evening Rotary’s UpTop met the needs of 28 students – again one laptop for every qualifying senior that applied. The challenge gets bigger as we expand our program to include Denton High School…
2019/20… 46 Students Applied: There are a total of 46 hard working students in the Talent Search program at Ryan High and Denton High that would benefit greatly from having their own laptop as they finish their senior year and head off to college. 46 is a big number. We can’t do this without your support. Click here to learn more about the Talent Search program.
Winter Warmer 2020: The Winter Warmer hosted by the Denton Evening Rotary provides the funding for UpTop Denton. Please turn out on Saturday, March 7 at Denton County Brewing and The Bearded Monk to give your support for these students and have a great time while you are doing it.
