Content Item - Computers 4 Community

This program liaises with business and organisations to facilitate donations of late-model superseded PC and IT equipment that are then re-furbished with licenced Microsoft Software and a tutorial installed. These are then provided to disadvantaged students and needy groups in communities.

How Clubs can assist:

  • Source computers, screens, keyboards and mice (computers need to be Pentium 4 and above with DVD reader)
  • Source worthy recipients, either individuals or organisations to receive the refurbished computers
  • Fund a $60 charge to cover license fees and refurbishment costs
  • Consider funding computer refurbishment cost and freight for overseas projects.

Program representatives: Rick Westcott (Melbourne), Joe Butler (Brimbank Central), Jack Watson (Brimbank Central) Peter Sutherland (North Balwyn)
