Do you remember the time you brought home your first computer? If you were as excited as I was, you can understand a little of why we enjoy helping with this great cause. We are here to give other people that same feeling of empowerment and quality of life that computer technology affords us.
Even though the information age has grown and many people are technologically savvy, there are still a lot of people without personal computers and computer skills to use them. There are many parents who cannot afford computers. Some parents and their children lack the understanding and ability to send an email, create a Word document, surf the internet and millions of other common tasks that can be done on a computer. This puts them at a disadvantage in our society. We will provide them with the computers needed to build those skills.
It is our mission to provide personal computers to those that are missing out due to lack of finances or lack of technology savvy. Our focus is to provide computers and computer skills to disadvantaged seniors, families, children, and teens.
Some senior citizens have a slight technology knowledge gap and we will endeavor to get the computers in their homes and provide basic training for them, by doing this we will help bridge that knowledge gap.
By providing parents with small children computers to learn from home while caring for their children, we will encourage these young people to stay in school and eventually go to college or get a job. If you’re ready to help, please see our list of current needs:
