Computers for Refugees

Since 2017, we have been refurbishing donated computers for refugees, migrant workers, newly arrived immigrants as well as those displaced by the weather disaster in Puerto Rico. We are especially reaching out to English students at the Alpha and Omega Community Center who need a computer. We are also working with Church World Service and the Migrant Education Program.

 If you want to RECEIVE a computer, contact Danny Gingrich at the Alpha and Omega Community Center to receive an application. Recipients are required to fill out an application and write a paragraph to introduce yourself and tell why you need a computer.  

 

If you want to DONATE to COMPUTERS FOR REFUGEES, we could use your help in one of two ways.

    First, you can donate a computer.

             We are accepting desktops and laptops, seven years and newer with Windows Vista or 7. We can also use accessories, such as keyboards, mice, monitors,                  cables, speakers, WiFi adapters, and cameras. In addition, we can take tablets. Stu Metzler can answer any of your technical questions.

   Second, you can donate financially.

            Sometimes, we have minor expenses, such as getting licenses or buying a WiFi adapter. You can donate through PayPal on the Alpha and Omega                             Community Center’s website. You will receive a tax-deductible receipt. You may also send or bring a check to AOCC at 708 Wabank Street, Lancaster PA                 17603.
