This program is run by the Masonic Angel Foundation

The Mission: 

For today’s school children, a home computer is an essential educational tool.  Children who do not have access to a computer outside of school hours suffer more and more of a disadvantage the further they progress through the grade levels.  Local businesses and individuals donate gently used laptop computers to the Masonic Angel Foundation, Inc.  The Laptop for KidZ Project’s volunteer staff refurbish the computers and make them ready for distribution to schools through the Masonic Angel Foundation’s partners in local school systems. 

 

The Cotuit Library's Role:  We are a collection center for the donated laptops

 

Your Role:  Bring in your used laptops (personal and/or business) to the library and the Angel Foundation will take it from there.  Read the article below for a peek into the program's success!
