Computers in the Sun Summer Cleanup event
Published on Wed, Jun 19, 2013 (12:25 p.m.)Computers for Kids, Inc. (a.k.a. CFK) needs your help. A local non-profit organization, we take donated computers; refurbish and license them; and then distribute fully-equipped computer systems to Nevada students kindergarten through second year of college. However, in order to distribute computers to our students CFK needs to receive donations of computers from the public. Las Vegas can help by donating their old, no-longer used, broken, surplus computers to Computers for Kids. It is the mission of CFK to equalize the educational opportunities of Nevada school children by providing them with computers for home use. Through the generosity of individuals and businesses during the past year CFK has distributed over 2,000 refurbished computer systems to our Nevada students.
“Computers in the Sun” summer cleanup event is a plea to the community, individuals and businesses, to consider donating their computers to CFK. Every hard drive that is donated with or without a computer will be securely erased by Secure Data Sanitization, LLC (www.sdssafe.com) a longtime supporter of CFK. If you want to help with a computer donation, money, or simply would like to volunteer your help; please contact us. We are conveniently located at 5180 South Cameron Street, Suite #2 (two blocks south of The Orleans Casino). The hours of operation are Tuesday-Friday 9AM-4PM, and Saturday 9AM-1PM. For more information please call 702-366-0909 or visit our website, www.cfknevada.org. For donations of 20 or more computers CFK will gladly schedule a pickup.
Please won’t you help? Nevada’s students will receive valuable technology experience; your donations will receive a charitable tax deduction, and we all can go green with less electronics going to the landfills. With your help CFK is closing the “digital divide” occurring between those who have easy access to computer technology vs. those who do not.
