-Your donations have helped the schools during the Covid 19 pandemic-
During the months of January, 2020 to December 31, 2020, the Computer Relife program at Ruth's Reusable Resources moved over 2814 computers, laptops and monitors to over 112 schools and non-profit organizations throughout Maine and New Hampshire.
We also received over 1700 CPUs, laptops and monitors from many local companies and organizations that wanted to help our efforts to meet the technology needs of our New England schools during this difficult time.
Leesa a teacher in the Greater Portland area purchased one of the few iPads that we had in the Spring:
I do use the iPad quite a bit. (School) is off this week for Spring Break. I have 3 grandsons - 2, 3 & 4. The youngest has some breathing issues, so they've been home for weeks. The 3 year old has speech therapy via Zoom now... he and the 4 year old take karate via Zoom, plus their meetings with the 2 pre-school teachers. I loaned them the iPad for the week, just to make it a bit easier for them to participate without trying to do it via mom's phone. IF there is any chance of being able to buy another one, I'd be interested. I guess technically it would be for student use, just not my student, lol.
Kelley W who teaches in Oxford County, bought 5 laptops at $35 each to give to her students:
Ruth's Reusable Resources has distributed quality usable computers and computer related equipment to schools and non-profit organizations for over 25 years.
