In March, the Softchoice Dallas Team was able to be a part of the Habitat for Humanity computer pilot program. The program, which Softchoice Cares had been working with Habitat for the last year and a half, has the goal to donate refurbished computers to Habitat home owners. With the help of Redemtech, who provided the refurbished computers, we were able to supply 25 families with a full desktop computer and monitor. Before the families were able to take the computers home, we did a brief overview of the computer itself and some security awareness. The home owners also had to sign a waiver that they would call Redemtech if they no longer wanted/needed the computer for proper disposal. This is now happening in four other cities with plans to growth nationwide. Through the hard work and partnership of Softchoice Cares and Habitat for Humanity we are continuing to bridge the digital divide here at home!
