Free computers on their way to Flin Flon, Thompson and Marcel Colomb Cree Nation

July 9, 2020

Below is an excerpt from the Thompson Citizen:

Northern Manitoba residents are among those who will benefit from the latest batch of refurbished desktop computers being donated by Tech Manitoba to those in need.

Fifteen of the computers packed up and shipped off from Winnipeg July 6 will be going to Flin Flon School Division students whose families were receiving food hampers and school materials, including borrowed laptops, since in-person classes were suspended in late March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Another 15 are bound for Thompson, where they will be distributed to people and organizations in the city and in outlying communities, including Marcel Colomb Cree Nation near Lynn Lake, by Tech Manitoba's partner University College of the North (UCN).

The computers were refurbished by Computers for Schools and come complete with a keyboard, mouse, monitor and preloaded videos on computer basics created by Tech Manitoba to help recipients set up their computers, learn basic computer skills and get safely online.
