PC  Refurbishing Project

SPCUG volunteers refurbish used computers and donate them to those who need a computer but cannot afford to purchase one. Examples of recipients:

School students

After school programs

Special student programs

Single special needs parents

Disabled individuals

Adult education

We wish to remind our SPCUG membership that anyone that they know who needs a computer, but can not afford to purchase one, should write a letter to David Winkelman explaining their situation. He will evaluate the request to see if the individual qualifies for a donation. Write the letter to: David Winkelman, PC Refurbishing Project, 3951 Sawyer Road, Sarasota 34233. This is the location of the Refurbishing workshop.
