The UU Village Church sponsors the C4K program which refurbishes laptop and desktop computers as an authorized Microsoft Registered Refurbisher. All computers donated to the program have their disk drive(s) wiped, then current Microsoft software (Windows 10 Pro and Office 2010) and several utility programs are installed on each computer (CCleaner, Malwarebytes, Picasa, etc.),
Refurbished computers are distributed to Middle or High School students who qualify for the National School Lunch program. Some of the refurbished computers (primarily laptops) are distributed to college bound students who would not otherwise have a computer. In addition, adults involved in programs operated by non-profits organizations can qualify for a computer.
Personal computers which have Windows 7 or a later OS or have dual core processors qualify to be refurbished. Please consider donating your unwanted computer to the C4K program and make your friends and neighbors aware of the C4K program. To arrange a pick-up or to drop off a computer, visit the UU-C4K web site (uuvc.org/c4k), send an email to (email@example.com) or call (501/781-0598), leave a message and someone will call you back.
