Report – Support During Corona Virus

 
It is always amazing to see how many people are willing to help, especially during times like we have all faced the last several months.

 

Computers, especially laptops, are in greater demand than ever before because of the isolated conditions we face.

We express thanks to many for making it possible to provide computing devices to those in need. Such as:

Sorenson Legacy Foundation        Financial Support
Derick and Rebecca Family          Office space and Utilities
Microsoft                                          Microsoft 10  and Word 2010
Booksmarts                                 Accounting
And Many others!

A special thanks to the volunteers for their professional work - Jim, Norm, William, Luke , and others.

During the first 6 months of 2020, we have provided 282 computers, including 155 Chromebooks. June was our largest month with 88 computers. 
Over 80% of the computers distributed so far this year have been given to BYU Pathway students and families from Work Force Services.
We are grateful that Luke joined us recently as a technical volunteer and we really appreciate (and need) his technical skills.

New Initiatives and Campaigns

  1. BYU Pathway International:  We are developing a plan to provide computers for students who live in Asia and Africa.  We hope to start this program in August of this year. (As his shirt says: Never Give Up )  🙂
  1. Bethlehem Children with special needs. Later this Fall we hope to raise enough money to provide several specialized computers for children with special needs in Bethlehem. I met the director of the foster care facility and was very impressed with their work. A good friend, Mohammad Al-Shiabat, lives in Bethlehem and he will help coordinate the donation.
