Project seeks used computer donations for keiki in Lahaina
In collaboration with Princess Nahienaena School in Lahaina, the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset has launched the “Computers for Kids” project.
The club learned that Princess Nahienaena School is a Title I school and many students do not have access to a computer in their homes.
Working with the club’s community service chairs, Sara Foley and Katie Zimmerman, and the skills and expertise of George Gordon, “The Computer Guru,” the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset has set the goal of providing 90 refurbished computers for these families.
Any laptop, desktop or tablet can be donated and Gordon has offered to “wipe clean, sanitize and update” these devices to make them “school ready” for distribution.
“We are very sure that our Maui community members will rise to this challenge of donating 90 devices for these families by July 31st,” said Joanne Laird, past president and coordinator of this project.
Devices can be dropped off at Moku Roots restaurant in the Lahaina Gateway Center between 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily. It is encouraged that devices be taken to the restaurant in a brown paper bag. Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset Foundation holds a nonprofit status. A form will be available upon drop off to receive a mahalo letter for tax purposes.
