Computers for Families is a Santa Barbara non-profit that has made it their mission to bridge the gap between children of various socio-economic levels. Earlier this month, Computers for Families issued a call for donations of used computers from the community to serve the needs of their underprivileged youth.
This organization has already made over 8,500 computers available to school children of Santa Barbara county. The computers are donated from members of the community and are refurbished by the organization as well as the students of Los Prietos Boys Camp. The computers are targeted for low-income fourth-sixth graders. Every year, the project releases 600 used and refurbished computers to 28 elementary schools in the South Coast region.
Computers for Families has operated since 1997, but due to the recent downturn in the economy, many businesses and individuals are reluctant to upgrade their systems thereby keeping their computers and parts. That is why Computer for Families is calling on members of the community to extend their kindness by donating to the cause for the new school year.
The organization hopes that this exposure to technology applications will serve these students in an important way. The goal is to diminish or eliminate the disparity of their technology skill set to that of higher income households. Computers for Families is also pleased to be giving the student of Los Prietos Boys Camp the opportunity to get hand-on experience refurbishing computers for use in future careers.
