Chatham Elementary School has received five laptops from the Masonic Angel Foundation’s Laptops for KidZ project. The laptops will be sent home with children who do not have access to a computer outside school hours.
The five Panasonic Toughbook computers were donated by Overlook Visiting Nurse Association two weeks ago. Each machine is configured with Windows 7 Professional, Open Office and Avast! antivirus software. The laptops feature dual core Pentium processors, 2 gigabytes of RAM and a 120 gigabyte hard drive. Laptops for KidZ computers go home with a free flash drive to facilitate transfer of files between home and school.
Chatham has received 13 Laptops for KidZ computers in the past two years, according to St. Martin’s Lodge Masonic Angel Fund trustee Michael Anderson. St. Martin’s Lodge’s local Masonic Angel Fund chapter underwrote the cost of refurbishing the machines placed in Chatham by Laptops for KidZ.
The Laptops for KidZ project has placed 507 computers with schools across Cape Cod and beyond since May 2010.
