Program at Gowanus Houses Needs Computer Donations

Have a computer sitting around that you've outgrown? We came across an email from a local resident who is putting together a computer training course for the Gowanus Houses Community Center "to teach kids in public housing the fundamentals of computers using free and open source software." The resident, Kevin Hardiman, says he is "looking to the community for computer donations - full computer systems desired, but incomplete system will be evaluated - to drive the program." He is seeking people or businesses willing to donate old unused machines or that would be intesting in helping, and can be reached at kevin (at) opensourcebrooklyn (dot) com. The program is being developed in conjunction with the Gowanus Houses Community Center, and has the support of the Gowanus Tenant Association.
