Since its inception in Fall 2010, the computer donation program has given 106 laptops to over 55 Texas-based non-profits. The computers have enabled non-profits to better perform their mission, by providing an avenue for mobile training and presentations, case management efficiencies, adoption registrations, along with a host of other functions aimed at helping the disadvantaged.
“When we support a neighbor in need, we’re building a stronger community for everyone to enjoy,” said John Wright, managing partner, PS&Co. “Building on over sixty years of community involvement, our computer donation program is meeting the crucial technology needs of our local non-profits.”
Starting October 8, PS&Co. is accepting applications from non-profits who can put up to three computers to good use in their efforts to serve the community. The application is now available. Non-profits can submit the application online or postmark their submission by October 31. For more information, visit www.padgett-
