60 Downtown Alliance Computers Donated to Local Not-For-Profit Organizations
After upgrading its computer network this past spring, the Downtown Alliance donated 60 of its previously owned computers to nine not-for-profit organizations in the major metropolitan area.
“Guided by David Rockefeller’s 50-year-old tradition of civic activism, our organization has a long history of collaboration and commitment to community,” said Elizabeth H. Berger, president of the Downtown Alliance. “We are excited to continue building on his vision with the donation of these computers.”
Organizations receiving computer donations include:
- Futures and Options
- Global Potential
- Per Scholas
- Sports and Arts in Schools (SASF)
- Personal Space Theatrics
- Queens Pride House
- New Yorkers for Parks
- Planned Parenthood of Nassau County
- United War Veterans Council, Inc.
The Downtown Alliance staff sought not-for-profit organizations in need of additional computers, and these organizations accepted the donations.
Approximately four years old, each Intel HP Convertible minitower computer has been reinstalled with Windows XP. Restored to initial settings, the units also come with rewriteable DVD drives and keyboards.
