RRRcomputer.org donated 25 laptops to Academy of Alameda for their after school program for the instruction of photoshop and adobe products. Academy of Alameda Middle School is ASES funded and are often the only place our low income students are able to use a computer to complete homework and/or projects. We have limited access to our school’s technology but try to serve our students as best we can each day. Having some laptops of our own would mean that more students would get more access, and would approve our efficacy rate for homework completion. In this technological age it’s crucial that we spend time with our kids and teach them how to access tools they will inevitably need in the future!

So, please submit by April 30th of 2016 for us to distribute to you before the end of May 2016. Please include a video submission of your program explaining the needs. Please spread the word to any after school programs that you know who needs the computers.
Christmas 2015 Distribution During Christmas 2015 distribution in heavy pouring rain, there was a family was determined to come to get the computer for her 4 children. She was homeless some time after she applied. She found out that her landlord was not an actual landlord whom she had been paying to. So now she is without a home with her kids attending school. She told us that having a computer would help her kids to keep up with their classmates in the classes. They can now go to the cafe to use the internet for the kids’ research for homework. We wish them the best of luck.
June 2015 Computer Donation RRRcomputer.org is making progress in realizing our mission to provide computers to children in this latest phase. In June, we received a corporate donation of identical computers. Receiving identical computers makes it easier for us to refurbish and re-image. The laptops were refurbished during the 3rd quarter, and loaded with a new operating system, OpenOffice™, and access to online word processing tools like Google Docs as well as email services. These laptops are being distributed to deserving Bay Area children December 18 – 19, 2015, 6:00 – 7:30pm, at the Perch Coffee House, 440 Grand Ave, Oakland, CA. RRRcomputer.org is seeking warehouse storage for the equipment in order to accommodate more computers which will also allow us to distribute faster. If you know of a gratis storage area or facility, please contact donate@RRRcomputer.org. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our corporate donors and
