Walt Whitman High School Laptop Donation program.
Are you planning to upgrade your laptop computer this year?
Is your office upgrading?
We need your old laptops and laptop accessories!
The PTSA started this program in 2007 to give laptops to students who do not have access to a computer at home. We all know how important a computer is for a student to accomplish their work, something most of us take for granted.
There are needy students who could really benefit from your donation of a used
laptop. Dr. Goodwin checks with staff and counselors regularly to see which
students our community can help.
If you are planning to upgrade or just don't need your old laptop, please
help Whitman students. The PTSA is collecting Apple Mac books and laptops to refurbish and give
to students who do not have access to a computer at home .
HERE IS WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
- Preferably an Apple Macbook or a laptop in working order made after 2007
- No physical defects or damage aside from normal wear and tear
- Has a CD ROM drive
- Hard-drive is working
- Running either Vista or Windows 7. Laptops with XP are acceptable if there is a Vista Ready sticker.
- The laptop does not have to be bootable
- Please include the AC adapter.
The owner must make sure that any important data has been copied as all data is erased by installing Linux and will not be accessible by anyone after the wipe process is completed. If the hard drive is operational, Peter Dressner can do this for you for a reasonable fee.
Please call or email me, Cindy Szparaga (301) 775-2437 email@example.com and I will arrange to pick up the
computer. Please specify if it is in working order. I am happy to give you a donation receipt for your records. Briefcases, extra AC adapters, mice, and any USB storage devices are also needed.
One Million Bones
National Mall in Washington, D.C.
June 8th-10th, 2013
The interfaith youth service group our kids co-founded (Capital Area Interfaith Friends) is organizing a bone-making as part of the One Million Bones art project to advocate for an end to genocide. The bones will be laid on the Mall in June as part of a weekend of advocacy.
VERY FAMILY FRIENDLY!
Holocaust remembrance day was this week. We need to work together to actualize the commitment "Never Again". Connecting hearts and hands, working together for justice and non-violence.
Naomi Natale, founder of One Million Bones will join us!
Paper Coupons Needed
This is a community service project for the students of Sheppard-Pratt Frost School, a school for special needs children.
Sheppard-Pratt's Frost School is collecting, cutting and sorting manufacturers' coupons for donation to military families living on bases abroad.
Military families overseas are on very fixed incomes. They shop on base for their groceries and this is apparently very expensive. This project was started to help military families shop using manufacturers' coupons, even ones that are expired up to six months.
If you have paper coupons to donate, coupons printed from the internet are welcome, too, please:
- Drop them in the container on the front patio
at 7109 Amy Lane, 20817
- Send an email and I'll pick them up
- If you're in Aspen Hill, drop them at the Frost School
This is an ongoing project, so your continued help will be much appreciated.
