Take broken down computers, refurbish them to be as good as new, and you have a valuable resource that can open the keys to learning, opportunities and usefulness to the senior generation at Senior Services of Stamford.
Stamford, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/19/2011 -- Take a used (well-used) computer and what do you do with it? As a matter of fact, find yourself with multiple computers that you don't know what to do with, and you can have them taking up space forever. Netology and Totilo & Co LLC found the perfect use for them. The Senior Services of Stamford happened to be looking for second-hand computers. Since Totilo had some second-hands that were not being used, they contacted Netology who cleaned them up, prepped them for use, and delivered them onsite.
The computers were going to be put to good use. Senior Services of Stamford had been looking for second-hand computers for some time for their “Over 60 Club” computer lab that their seniors could use for completion of online forms, filling out applications, computer classes, and a myriad other things that they might want to do on the computer.
Senior Services of Stamford is a private 101-year-old independent, not-for-profit agency that takes care of providing information and financial assistance to the over-60 population of Stamford, Connecticut. The senior citizens can receive everything from helpful resources to materials at no charge and available to any Stamford resident over age 60. Financial assistance is also provided on a case-by-case emergency basis as long as a client can show that they have a real need for it.
The Over 60 Club is a drop-in center for seniors looking for something to do or to just enjoy companionship of other members. With activities ranging from line dancing, knitting and crocheting, crafts, lunch on Wednesday and Friday, exercises, computer class, special celebrations, entertainment and blood pressure screening, there's plenty that can keep their minds and bodies active.
When we spoke with Jamie D'Agostino, CEO and Sr. Engineer at Netology, he mentioned, "When Totilo & Co came to us and asked if we could refurbish the computers and why, we were more than willing to get involved with such a worthwhile cause. Each and every day can be a learning adventure; providing the means can open up whole new worlds to people of any age - even far into the golden years."
