At the beginning of January, the St. Peter AME Church (led by Reverend Steven Shepard) opened its doors to individuals experiencing homelessness. In the past month, they have provided shelter for over 1,600 persons, working night and day to ensure that their basic human needs are met.
Last Saturday, FreeSource was privileged with the task of putting together a small computer lab within the church for the benefit of individuals who might not have regular access to online resources. The lab consists entirely of ostensibly obsolete PCs brought back to life with a low-power, user-friendly distribution of Linux and loaded with free and open source educational and productivity software (and games).
If you happen to have an old computer lying around that you wouldn’t mind donating for use in projects such as this, feel free to let us know! All donations are tax delectable.
