Building Momentum, a local “problem solving organization,” has been providing easy-to-assemble desks to Alexandria students since the start of the fall 2020 school year, and now some Virginia Tech alumni have joined the project, according to a news release.

Alexandria City Public Schools have been almost entirely virtual for the majority of the school year, which has presented challenges for parents and students. The plywood desks, which Building Momentum claims can be constructed in less than five minutes, were designed to help provide a stable learning space for students, according to the release.

A group of Virginia Tech alumni have also started lending their help to Building Momentum’s desk project in order to assist the community that will host the university’s Innovation Campus, according to the release.

Building Momentum had received more than 300 desk requests and had delivered about 150 desks by mid-November, according to the release. Families can request a desk by visiting https://buildmo.com/desks.
