HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE -- The UU-Computers for Kids, or C4K, program is approaching a normal level of operation.

Area students may qualify for one of the laptops or a desktop. A $20 donation is requested for a refurbished computer with Windows 10 and Office 2019 included.

Recent placements arranged by Placement Director Jade Sierra include 16 computers to Abilities Unlimited and 15 computers to Essential Pathways, both of Hot Springs. Upcoming placements include 24 adults graduating from Bridges Out of Poverty programs sponsored by Cooperative Christian Ministries and Clinic in Hot Springs.

"Several good things have occurred over the last few months which are worth reporting," a news release said. "Some of the good news is C4K received 70 desktop computers from Ouachita Baptist University and 12 systems from Hot Springs School District. The 12 systems from HSSD were refurbished and placed with Essential Pathways."

C4K is a 13-year-old nonprofit organization based in Hot Springs Village that refurbishes secondhand computers with current software, including Windows 10 and Office 2019 plus other useful software. The refurbished computers are placed with K-12 and college students and adults participating in self-improvement programs, the release said.
