College district seeks computer equipment

The Foothill-De Anza Community College District is seeking donations of used computer equipment for its Computer Donation and Scholarship Program, which refurbishes the machines and gives them to economically disadvantaged community college students.

The program accepts PC computers capable of running Windows XP Professional (Pentium 4 PCs or laptops — no Apple computers) and is particularly seeking LCD flat-panel monitors. Seventeen-inch CRT monitors are also accepted. All donated computers have their hard drives reformatted to ensure that all data is erased.

The program is part of the Occupational Training Institute, which provides job training to Foothill-De Anza students. Students training for technical support careers work with staff to refurbish the donated computers. The computers are then matched with students who have applied for them through the financial-aid office.

Those interested in donating computer equipment may write or call (408) 864-5713. Donations are tax deductible.
