Computers Too!

In addition to the millions of books we donate we are now donating computers too!

Reading mentors Nathan Nash and Grace Li help pack a Dell computer bound for the Navajo Reservation.

The Dell Optiplex GX 270 computer, with a flat screen monitor, is the first computer donation that Reader To Reader has made and will be the first of 30 to be donated this year.

The refurbished computer was donated by Amherst College and will be used as part of the Navajo Mentoring Program’s online book discussions, as well as for their other computer needs.

The computer was serviced and prepped by the IT department so that it is completely ready to run right out of the box.

Our goal is to build a new computer lab at Navajo Pine High School in Navajo, NM, replacing their ancient 10-12-year-old computers with computers that are 3-4-years-old.

Our thanks to Amherst College and their IT department for making these computers available for donation.
