Larry Pender and Mohamed, from New York University Assest Management, have donated many computers, monitors and printers.

 
 

Impact Computers, a company that sells computer parts, with offices in Miami and Guatemala, has very generously offered to send us batteries and fans for numerous laptops that need repair. VP David Salaues, from Bolivia, found us on the internet and called to see how he could help. David has also offered to contact Casa Shalom orphange in Guatemala, where many of these repaired laptops will go, to see how Impact Computers can help the orphanage. Gracias David! August 20, 2008

Christoph Hanau repairing computers, with Doug Bell watching. Christoph, Darien resident and seventh and eighth grade math teacher in the Stamford public schools, always seems to know exactly when help is needed, and he steps in with “new energy.” Christoph went through a pile of about 25 computers, fixing those he could and deciding which were not worth fixing.

Cory Visi (left) and Frank Jones, principals of GC InfoTech in Stamford, ask their clients to donate computers to us when they upgrade, and have already donated numerous computers. Cory is active in scouting in Darien and referred scout David Morgan to us. David, only 15 and a candidate for Eagle Scout, generously spent a lot of time fixing computers, teaching how to fix computers, organizing the garage, and most important, is redoing the web site. David is smart, nice and a hard worker, a unique combination! Thanks Frank and Cory for your enthuasiastic support!
