In January PCs for People set out on a Computer Refurbishing bus tour of rural Minnesota. The plan was to hit 10 communities to bring their tricked out bus, collect computers in various communities, fix them up and leave them behind for the community to disperse to deserving homes. I wanted to share an update on the tour from PCs for People’s Casey Sorenson…
I just wanted to provide a quick update since we are half way through the 10 scheduled events. With Faribault, Fairmont, Alexandria, Marshall and Crookston under our belts we are starting to get pretty good at mobile refurb. At our last event in Crookston we were even able to quit at 6PM one night. That’s a big change from the first event when we had to work until 3AM to get everything done! So far we have distributed 387 computers and trained almost 800 people on computer basics. The work has also provided new life to approximately 13.5 tons of computer equipment. No wonder my back is tired!
We applaud their efforts and their continued progress. Going back to their original list – you can check to see if they will be in your neighborhood anytime soon…
