PC's for Youth in LaGrange County
If you are upgrading to a new system or have an old computer you no longer use, make a donation to PC's for Youth in LaGrange County. Your donation will help a young person in our community.
I received an email from a young man requesting donations of computers, laptops, and the accessories used with them for a local not for profit organization he belongs to. Three local students are making use of these donated items by refurbishing them, clearing the personal data, and donating them to students who otherwise would be without access to these important tools of learning. They are also accepting monetary donations which are used to further the cause.
The following information was included in his email, and you can find out more about this group by visiting the PC's for Youth website.
Their slogan is "Helping to bridge the digital divide in our community", and so far they have given away 25 computers!
At PC's For Youth, we believe that having access to and properly using a computer for educational purposes can dramatically increase the educational development of a child. We also recognize the fact that not all children have access to computers and therefore are at a disadvantage compared to their more fortunate classmates. It is PC's For Youth's mission to provide youth of LaGrange County with computers and knowledge about operating computers in order to increase the educational development of the children receiving these computers.
