HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE -- Villagers Bob McClesky and Loren Loberg spoke at the Jan. 31 meeting of Hot Springs Village Rotary Club about the Computers 4 Kids program.

C4K, which has been in existence for about 10 years, is housed at the Unitarian Universalist Village Church and refurbishes donated computers. Old computers are upgraded with current software after the hard drive is completely wiped to remove all personal data, files and programs.

The donated computers are then placed with individuals who need one, such as students and adults who are attempting to improve their lives, as well as nonprofit organizations, a news release said.

Working with six volunteers, C4K is a registered refurbisher and actively supports the Bridges out of Poverty program.

"Laptops are especially needed to help homeless kids, of whom there are said to be about 300 in this area," the release said.

To contribute a computer, donors may drop it off at the UU Village Church located at the corner of Barcelona Road and Calella, or they can make arrangements for computer to be picked up by calling 501-781-0598 and leaving a message.
