Help Kids Get Computers to start school!
In collaboration with Princess Nahienaena School the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset announces the “Computers for Kids Project”.  The club learned that Princess Nahienaena School is a Title I School and many students do not have access to a computer in their homes.  Working with the  club’s Community Service Chairs, Sara Foley and Katie Zimmerman, and the skills and expertise of George Gordon, “The Computer Guru”, the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset has set the goal of providing 90 refurbished computers for these families.  Any laptop, desktop or tablet can be donated and Gordon has generously offered to “wipe clean, sanitize and update” these devices to make them “school ready” for distribution.  According to Joanne Laird, Past President and coordinator of this project: “We are very sure that our Maui community members will rise to this challenge of donating 90 devices for these families by July 31st”.  How to donate?  Devices can be dropped off at Moku Roots Restaurant located in the Lahaina Gateway Center between the hours of 10:30 am-3:00 pm any day of the week.  It is encouraged that devices be taken to the restaurant in a brown paper bag.  Since the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset Foundation holds a 501(c)(3) non-profit status, a form will be available upon drop off so that the person making the donation can receive a mahalo letter for tax purposes.
Please consider donating your “vintage” devices to support this program to get the needed technology into the hands of these families.  Please contact Joanne Laird if you have additional questions – otherwise, Moku Roots is ready to receive your device donations (and this is an award-winning restaurant as well – ono food!)  Joanne can be reached at: or via cell at 808-757-0981. Let’s help make “90 devices the New Norm”!!
