[CS-FSLUG] Personal request

Gentle Listmembers: I am requesting donations of spare computer hardware
and parts.

Background: My church has a bus ministry. On Saturdays, we have a dozen
or so buses go into the poorest neighborhoods near our facility and
bring in a hundred or so kids. They have "Saturday Bus Church" and not a
few make decisions to serve Christ just about every week.

As part of our annual Care Day outreach, the Computer Help Team would
like to gather up some donated used computers to refurbish and give to
some of these kids. Essentially, the computer becomes a doorway for
continuing involvement in the recipients' households, since they will no
doubt need support and maintenance.

Our target is 10 systems, with printer and the works. We would like for
them to be Net-ready, so modems are nearly essential (under the
assumption these families aren't likely to find broadband affordable).
We believe a local provider will help us with affordable dialup service.

1. Pray for this endeavor.

2. Consider if you have any useful hardware you can ship to the church
house in Oklahoma City (mailing address upon request).

Need I say I will do my best to insure some of these kids get a Linux
computer? Just teaching them how to use it would be a great outreach
opportunity. Should something go horribly wrong and we not be able to
hand these computers off to some kids, we guarantee they will be used in
some other church-based give-away program.
