San Diego, CA, October 4, 2019 – Managed Solution has supported and been involved with Computers 2 SD Kids for quite some time now. Managed Solution has donated their own old laptops and devices as well as introduced their clients to this non-profit organization to donate their equipment as well.
The laptops, desktops and other devices donated to Computers 2 SD Kids are refurbished, wiped clean and then distributed to families in need at local schools and around town. Children who use home computers perform better in school, however 23% of San Diego County families are without computers. Computers 2 SD Kids was formed to help fill that gap.
Recently, The WIT Network – San Diego, co-chaired by two Managed Solution employees, Tina Rountree, and Jennifer Benedict gave their time at one of the distribution locations to hand out the devices to local families.
Tina Rountree, Director of Sales at Managed Solution and co-chair to the WIT Network SD Chapter, commented, “Having the opportunity to help these kids do better in school through the use of technology is amazing. With the refurbished devices comes anti-virus software and Office 365 applications so the kids are really set up for success. I love empowering others through the use of technology, and if we can start them young, even better. It was a beautiful day to help out, and we look forward to the next one.”
Jennifer Benedict, added by saying, “The WIT Network is so important to me. It’s about empowerment and supporting one another. Today, not only did we do that for each other, but more importantly, for the kids. The smiles on these families’ faces were totally worth it. They’re going to have a bright future, and I’m glad we could lend a hand in that.”
