MNU Computers On The Way To Joplin
| by MNU News email@example.com
MNU is assisting ArtsTech KC by donating 22 computers to the organization’s effort to collect and refurbish PCs to donate to Joplin area tornado victims. The 12 desktop computers and 10 laptops have come to the end of their lifecycle at MNU but can still be well utilized by individuals and organizations in need.
According to user support analyst John Ludwig, the university schedules the replacement of older computers to help students and employees stay current with technological advances. Often the older inventory is stored until a good use is found for them outside the university.
“It’s great to send these computers to the people in Joplin,” Ludwig says. “Imagine having nothing. We are just so glad that these machines will be put to good use.”
Ludwig says he was alerted to the opportunity to assist Joplin residents by MNU associate vice president for information technology Marty Crossland. Crossland had been contacted by a former colleague who was assisting ArtsTech KC with the effort.
According to Crossland, ArtsTech KC is hoping to collect 200 computer systems to donate to Joplin. For information or to donate computer systems visit www.artstech-kc.org.
