The Next Stage ... A Hardware Lending Platform

By Joseph Ceasar | Executive Director

To all of our generous donors,

The last two years have been challenging for all of us. As we ended 2020, we all thought that the worst was over with the COVID-19 pandemic, but we were very wrong with that assumption. The Delta variant of 2021 has reminded us of how sensitive the topic is and how maintaining caution in how we operate is essential. 

We are proud to announce the next phase of our Technology Access Program. We were able to give away computer hardware valued in excess of $30,000. We have provided access to digital literacy training to over 50 members of our community and low-cost internet to nearly 15 more. We know that our project is accomplishing its goals. The next phase is how to bring sustainability to our efforts. We have been in communication with several organizations within our community and there is a growing number of people who only need to borrow a computer for a short period of time. With this new reality, we are launching a hardware leasing program. We will have 15-20 machines available for leases as short as one month. 

With this additional program, we are excited to add value to our community without being financially imposing. We're excited to share this information with you and look forward to informing you on how it's coming along.
