APEX has been gathering donated computer equipment to help the Heart House afterschool program with their computer lab. Right now, all they've got is a "hodge podge" of equipment where only 4 computers work semi-reliably, so we have gathered computer equipment donations together to improve their situation, so the kids have some better technology to use.
The event will be held at the Heart House at Stratford Hill where we will set up the computers for the Heart House. We've gathered enough equipment, but now need more folks to help build. It's an excellent opportunity to meet people, make a difference, and learn a bit about computers too. After the event is over, we'll all go out to lunch.
Anything we don't use will be "e-recycled," which means that parts of it will be reused and the rest will be safely and securely disposed of. This way, we also do our part for the environment.
Heart House Dallas is a free afterschool program dedicated to providing a safe haven and academic support to children of low-income families in the densely-populated Vickery Meadow community in Dallas, Texas. To learn more, visit www.hearthousedallas.org.
