San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) November 24, 2010
Attorneys from the San Francisco-based law firm, Albert G. Stoll, A Law Corp., want to help kids in poor public schools get computers. They are supporting an event to raise funds and awareness for an organization that works to bridge the growing digital divide in Bay Area public schools, and are asking for public participation.
The event is an initial "meet and greet" to help develop a formal fundraising committee that will support the activities of Partimus, a non-profit organization that provides repurposed computers -- running free open-source software -- to Bay Area students and schools that need them.
The kick-off event will take place on December 15, 2010, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the Creative Arts Charter School. The school is located at 1601 Turk Street in San Francisco.
"The purpose of our meeting is to raise awareness about our mission and to create a trusted group of dedicated volunteers who will focus on ongoing fundraising efforts to support our work throughout the Bay Area," said Christian Einfeldt, an associate attorney at the Stoll law firm who volunteers as the public outreach officer for Partimus. "'Partimus' is Latin for 'we share' and it captures the essence of what we're trying to accomplish. We believe that the power and advantages gained through technology were meant to be shared, so our focus is on leveraging free open source software and repurposed hardware in order to help bridge the digital divide that is leaving too many students behind."
"Our firm is dedicated to serving the legal needs of clients, regardless of their income or social status, so we are delighted to support Christian's efforts with Partimus and to join other Bay Area businesses in financially supporting the organization," said Albert G. Stoll, Jr., founding partner of San Francisco-based Albert G. Stoll, A Law Corp.
