A special delivery was made at Cordia School this morning.

Hundreds of computers were donated, just in time for school to start.

School leaders said it’s nothing short of a miracle.

"Pretty miraculous,” said Anthony Fugate, Principal at Cordia School.

Volunteer’s unloaded computer after computer.

"And this particular group from Ohio were here last year and decided they could do something more than working like they do,” said Alice Whitaker, Director of Lotts Creek Community Schools.

"When I heard about the school and heard about their success rate, I started calling around,” said Barbara Rembiesa, President and CEO of IAITAM. “We were able to donate 250 computers,”

But the truck included more than computers. Volunteers also brought smart boards, back packs, and books.

"200 books for the school," said Rembiesa.

School officials said by donating these resources, students will be able to advance their education.

"You start something small, and sometimes it turns into such a miracle," said Rembiesa.

"which is wow,” said Whitaker.

Officials said the school received more than 125 thousand dollars worth of technology.
