Since COVID hit in 2020, 我们已经翻新并向成年人分发了400多台捐赠的电脑, seniors, 以及与电脑所能提供的资源和机会隔绝的家庭. 使用电脑意味着成年人有更好的装备来培养他们进入劳动力市场所需的技能,并获得更高的工资, parents can more easily support their child’s education, 退伍军人和农村家庭可以获得在线医疗支持, 老年人也有机会提高他们的社会和公民参与度!

Our Refurbished Laptop Program does not distribute laptops to the general public; they are distributed through direct service providers at existing partner nonprofits. 由于资源有限,我们目前无法扩大我们的翻新笔记本电脑计划.
