Tech Manitoba is offering free refurbished computers with digital training to families in need in our area. They state during this COVID-19 outbreak many families and individuals are disconnected from society entirely and we rely on the internet to access timely information, work from home and connect with family and friends but those without a computer or who lack digital skills are further isolated.
This is a pilot project with a limited supply of computers and they have heard from many parents and students in need so they are trying to source more computers by partnering with others in the community to build their supply.
If you would like to nominate a deserving person, family or organization in need of a computer or is lacking basic computer skills fill out the form at https://techmanitoba.ca/digitall or call and leave a message at 431-478-0165. You can also call to donate a computer at 431-557-6644.
