ComputeReach Receives the 'Community Champion Award'
Last night we attended the 17th Annual Child Abuse Prevention Month Awards and Appreciation Benefit, and were honored to receive the ‘Community Champion Award!’
Here are some pictures of the award:
And some of our information, featured in the event’s pamphlet:
When the goal for the day is getting enough food for the children in your care, the possibility of a computer purchase becomes distant or impossible. Years go by, children continue to fall behind in learning how to use computers in their daily lives.
This is not just a problem in the developing nations in Africa, Central America or Asia…these are problems of poverty right here in Western Pennsylvania, and in the city of Pittsburgh.
ComputeReach is connected to Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania and has successfully refurbished over 3300 computers for children’s educational needs.
Computers that were destined for landfills are now valuable tools in the hands of children who would otherwise be left out..and left far behind their peers in more fortunate financial and social lives.
ComputeReach relies on a dedicated and increasing group of volunteers from churches, schools, businesses and community groups to help us embark on strategic missions throughout our local communities every week.
We are working to bridge the digital divide between the child and the expensive technology by rallying over 160 volunteers who make this all happen….we are focused on a common vision—providing access to a broader world view one child at a time.
We’d like to thank Family Resources for this wonderful event and for going out of their way to recognize us!
