The UU Village Church sponsors the C4K program which refurbishes laptop and desktop computers as an authorized Microsoft Third Party Refurbisher. All computers donated to the program have their disk drive(s) wiped, then we install current Microsoft software (Windows 10 Pro and Office 2010). In addition, several utility programs are installed on each computer (CCleaner, Malwarebytes, etc.). For under-powered PCs and iMacs and MacBook pro computers, we install Linux-Mint, along with a robust suite of applications including LibreOffice, Firefox, 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 may qualify for a computer.
Personal computers which have Windows 7 or a later OS 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) or call (501.781.0598) or email us at email@example.com.
