Computers 2 Kids

Our Mission


Honorable Paul Nordstrom and
a 2012 Computer Recipient

Our mission is to help students who have a sincere desire to learn and succeed.

By providing refurbished and upgraded personal computers to disadvantaged students and their families, the Computers 2 Kids in Need initiative helps break down economic, social and cultural barriers to learning and success.

How Does it Work?

Donations of computer hardware, software and sponsor funding are used to upgrade and rebuild desktop and laptop computers.

  • Every school in Will, Grundy, and Kendall counties has the opportunity to nominate one student per drawing.
  • Students are chosen based on the number of available computers.
  • Selections are currently made twice per year - once in the summer and once in the winter.
  • Students and their families are awarded the upgraded computers.
