FREDERICK Irwin Anglican School has donated more than 70 decommissioned computers and LCD monitors to Mandurah Muscateers.
The Mandurah Muscateers is a charity organisation in the Peel region, made up of enthusiastic volunteers, who believe that technology should be available to everyone.
With the support of community members, local business and Government departments, donations of unwanted or surplus computers are refurbished and made available at a heavily discounted prices for community support organisations and low income people.
Frederick Irwin Anglican School I.T. manager Dean Smith said he and his team were always looking for ways to give back to the Peel community.
“The devices were given to the school as part of the Federal Government’s 1:1 Computers in Schools Student Initiative, so it’s pleasing to see them continuing to help in the education of the wider community,” he said.
“We love to hear about Mandurah expanding as a regional technology hub, so this was a perfect opportunity to recycle the computers.”
Mandurah Muscateers vice president Kevin Diamond said the computers end up being given to benefit cards holders, like seniors and Veteran Affairs, as well as disadvantaged families, the Peel Youth Centre and refuge centres in the Peel district.
“It is always so rewarding to be able to pass on new donations to these groups in need,” he said.
Located at 7/3 Rafferty Road in Mandurah, Mandurah Muscateers appreciate the donation of machines.
