FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PHILADELPHIA (May 20, 2005) – Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP is pleased to announce that it is partnering with Computers for Schools (CFS) to provide new life for more than 200 used computers by refurbishing them and placing them in schools, non-profit organizations and lower-income homes.
Schnader donated to CFS more than 200 functional machines with processors ranging from 233MHz to 800MHz and a minimum of RAM. Each donated computer also included a monitor, keyboard, mouse and associated power cables.
CFS is a non-profit organization that finds second homes for older computer equipment that still has remaining life but has outlived its functionality in office environments. Through its refurbishment program, CFS receives equipment from donors, destroys any data on the hard drives, installs a new operating system and assorted software and offers the equipment to schools and other organizations for a nominal fee that covers the refurbishment cost.
CFS has placed more than 15,000 computers to date in more than 300 organizations and hundreds of homes to increase their educational competitiveness and prove that limited funding does not preclude access to technology. For more information on CFS and its programs, visit www.pcsforschools.org.
News of the donation was reported in the July 1, 2005 issue of The Legal Intelligencer.
