‘Bridging the digital divide’: Westwood program gets city grant

The city has announced grants for two dozen community-group-spearheaded technology programs around Seattle – and one is in West Seattle. The grants are made through the Technology Matching Fundall listed here. The one here is a $19,800 grant to upgrade the technology center at Westwood Heights, “with hardware and software to provide low income seniors and residents with disabilities instruction in basic computers, accessing online health resources, Internet safety and job readiness.”

    This is SUCH good news! The digital divide is growing and the amount of information available from the internet is growing even more. It’s so important that everyone have access.

    I have a 24″ LCD monitor, a laser printer and an older but still working PC the group in West Seattle could have once I check out their bonafides.

    They can post here or perhaps the blog owner can put them in touch with me as he has access to my email if I understand this system.

    Someone would have to pick the items up in the evening or a weekend as I do not drive.

    If they do not want the items, I would be happy to give them to some other local organization in West seattle that can use them.

Sorry, comment time is over.
