Years ago I used to refurbish computers and give them away for free to non-profits and low-income people. Rebecca is someone I used to help out a lot. She is in need of some laptops to borrow for awhile for her latest non-profit. If you think you can help her, please contact Rebecca directly.

Hi Mitch, happy new years. How have you been?
This is a hello and also a help request. I've been with a nonprofit
intensive English school now for about a year. Our students are mostly
immigrants and refugees from all over the world, and lately quite an
influx from Syria. The school has been serving the community for more
than 38 years, but it has been under financial stress the last few
years. It came up at a recent staff meeting that we need ten laptops
for our computer labs for a few months. This is only temporary and we
are seeking simple loaner laptops.
I thought of how you used to
reconfigure computers and donate them through an organization. It was
so long ago and I don't know if you're still involved in it at all, but I
thought of you when this need came up and am taking this opportunity to
say hi :-) If you are still connected to the cause and can help,
please contact me. Any number of loaner can help.
Here's a Thanksgiving article about some of our students http://www.ozy.com/true-story/a-very-refugee-thanksgiving/66186
Our school is called The English Center. Check us out if you get a moment. https://www.englishcenter.edu/
