The OTX Computer Giveaway Made for an Amazing Day!
OTX is a non-profit from Oakland whose mission is to get free computers and low-cost internet into homes of families in need. They refurbish computers and load them with programs. They then work with a school to give them away during a session where families sign up for an internet service (they can choose from many, but Comcast has the cheapest at $10/month) and go through a computer literacy training before taking home their computer. They are able to do this for about 40 families at one time at each school.
We gave away computers to almost 50 families. OTX says that they still have more to give. We had families park in front of the gym when they arrived. At 10:00 they began in the library with the computer literacy training in English and Spanish. Parents were able to have their questions answered during this session which lasted over an hour. Afterwards they stood in line in front of the gym until directed to drive their cars up in a line of about 3 or 4 cars at a time. Computers were placed in the cars and they drove away. It was a very smooth assembly line.
Mrs. Stevenson says she would love to do this again for our community.
