We met at 5:00pm in Rice Hall 305, received a new donation of over 20 computers and monitors and discussed the implementation of our current donations queue. We expect to be fulfilling two new requests in the coming week or so as our processing ability ramps up. We are also working on one very large request to complete this semester.
The computers for C2C Pals shipped successfully today and congratulations to all that were involved. These computers are on their way to Roatan, Honduras and we will hear about their impact shortly.
We also had a guest at our meeting, Mr. Mike Roman from the LEPP Group at Cornell. Mr. Roman spoke about his donation request to a sister church in New Orleans that will train youth in important job skills. This church previously had the ability to do so but was compromised by Hurricane Katrina and no longer has the funds to purchase new computers and train young adults in employable skills.
Our next meeting will be at the standard time, 5:00pm on Tuesday 9/25 location TBA.
We met today and went over the priority of donations we have been fielding requests for as well as sorted out some issues over projects we’ve already worked on. We are currently fielding requests for a large number of computers and hope to successfully complete them all. Shipping details are the major complication with most donations.
We resolved that the standard meeting time will be 5:00pm on Tuesdays with organizational meetings taking place in central locations around campus and all computer-related meetings in our room in Rice Hall.
Thanks for all who came to the meeting and see everyone again soon!
We met on Tuesday evening at 5pm in Rice and:
- unloaded 40 new computers that we will be donating very shortly to organizations
- showed new members our processing and storage space
- talked about our goals and a few projects
Mike is currently working on streamlining out new refurbishing/processing method with new members.
At the next meeting, we’ll go over all of the donations that have been requested and prioritize them.
