MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) Murphy High School now has 20 more computers thanks to Mobile County commissioners.
They voted to donate the computers after the school's campus was damaged in the Christmas day storm.
"We're just overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and hope it continues," said Patricia Hunter, Assistant Principal at Murphy High School.
"Murphy has a lot of our greatest assets, which are our kids. So whatever we can do to help, I think the commissioners felt that that was first and foremost," said Nancy Johnson, Mobile County spokesperson.
The computers will be handed over to the teachers, who will put them to good use. Some will be stored for the students who were shifted to Clark-Shaw Elementary School.
"it's our neighbor. It's our kids. It's their future, their education, so we thought that this was the best purpose for these computers," Johnson added.
Commissioners also donated computers to other agencies, including the Prichard Animal Shelter and Dumas Wesley Community Center.
