Call for CPS technology donations: Carter G. Woodson School

Trevor Scott gave me permission to republish this email:

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I know that even with budgets tightening, technology upgrades are still done in corporate and federal entities, therefore, I am asking that any old equipment that is recycled or trashed to be donated to Carter G. Woodson School South, 4414 S. Evans.  We are directly next door to a charter school with the same name so the address is of extreme importance to know the difference between the two schools.  We are a windows based school with wireless capabilities and kids who just want a fair chance to succeed.

Our immediate needs are:

  • Laptops
  • Network/individual printers
  • Desktops (preferably windows based and no older than 5 years)
  • Flat screen monitors
  • Copy machines
  • LCD projectors
Any other technology that is available will surely be appreciated. If you know of another professional body that is in a position to donate old technology that is not on this e-mail list then please feel free to pass this message on.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.  If you need any further information then please feel free to reply to this e-mail or call the school directly and ask for Trevor Scott at your earliest convenience.

Trevor Scott
Technology Coordinator, Carter G. Woodson South

Hardware is not just needed for the classroom: with the right software, it's invaluable for turning absolute beginners into strong players.

Your local public, parochial, or private school could also use some help, too.  If you're a teacher or volunteer seeking donations for your school, or if your business is swapping out XP machines for Windows 7 machines, I'd be happy to facilitate the matchmaking process!
