The Norwin Community Foundation meets in mid-January to make decisions on funding allocations for Irwin, North Huntingdon, and North Irwin area organizations.

Letters requesting funding should be submitted to foundation director William Kerr, Norwin Community Foundation, Norwin Administration Building, 281 McMahon Drive, North Huntingdon, Pa., 15642, by Jan. 4.

Smartphone Giveback Program

Norwin School District is accepting donations of old smart phones to help students participate in the district's Bring Your Own Device at the high and middle schools.

The donated smartphones will be used by students who do not have or are not able to bring their own devices to school.

District officials plan to clear all data from the smart phones before letting students use them. Students will be using the smartphones on the district's wireless network.

All smartphones should be no more than two years old, and come with a wall charger.

Donated smart phones can be written off as a tax deduction.

For more information, visit www.norwinsd.org/BYOD.

Apples for Students

Norwin Middle School is participating in Giant Eagle's Apples for Students program.

Every purchase at the store earns points for the school, which can be redeemed for educational equipment.

The school's program code is 5459, and participation does not affect the store's Fuel Perks or Food Perks programs.

Enrollment is available at www.gianteagle.com/schools/apples-for-students, or by calling 1-800-474-4777.
