Lakewood School donates computers for distribution by The Sharing Center

Lakewood School has donated 45 Gateway Netbooks to the Sharing Center.

The center will make the computers available to local students who might need them, said The Sharing Center executive director Sharon Pomaville.

“We will work directly with each Western Kenosha County school and Headstart to assist any student needs these may fill,” Pomaville said.

Rich Kojis, technology coordinator at Lakewood School, brought the computers to The Sharing Center Friday morning. They have been refurbished by middle school students involved in the after school cafe group. They took 57 netbooks and made 45 working netbooks. The school has replaced them with Chromebooks.

This gives a little more life to something that would otherwise just be recycled.
