Neighbors for a Livable West Linn

"Neighbors Working in the Community for the Community"

Computers for Kids Project

Each year since 2005, NLWL has provided families in need with a refurbished computer, video monitor, and printer for their students to use at home. Thanks to a collaboration with Microsoft, we are also able to provide new versions of Windows and Office on these PCs.

We identify families in our local school district who cannot afford to have a computer at home for their children. We then deliver these computers and provide training so the kids can get started using them.

We believe that it is critical for children to know how to use a computer in today's society.

Here are pictures of the recipient families (used with their permission).

Given that it has become more difficult to find families who do not already have a computer, we have decided that the 2015-2016 school year will be our last for this program. We thank everyone who donated their old computers, funds, or other hardware to this effort.
