Today: Oakland High School Giveaway Of $40,000 Of Computers Courtesy Of RRRComputer.org

Oakland – On Wednesday, September 30, more than a dozen students will receive refurbished MacBook Air computers, in the second day of this giveaway from RRRComputer.org, a San Francisco-based non-profit organization. The first day was last week when about 20 students received the devices, in a program that is separate from the #OaklandUndivided campaign. The second half of the group of 40 students receive their computers on Wednesday afternoon.

RRRComputer.org is in the business of collecting computers, refurbishing them, and donating them to young people. “It is important that the students get the laptops to do their homework online so that they can pass their classes during the Covid-19 shelter in place order,” said Hue Mach, RRRComputer.org Founder. “It is a matter of either not passing and being unable to go on to college or having a higher education. We need to help these students who are unable to buy a laptop to do their work online.”

OUSD and Oakland High School thank Mr. Mach and RRRComputer.org for supporting Oakland’s students.

WHAT: Refurbished MacBook Air Giveaway to Oakland High Students
WHEN: 2:30 p.m., Wednesday, September 30
WHERE: Oakland High School, 1023 MacArthur Blvd
