Outlook Foundation Spends Summertime Helping Children Get Ready for Back-to-School
Clark County School System Sees Rise in District Students Qualifying for Federal Programs
LAS VEGAS, Sept. 11, 2012 – The Outlook Foundation, a non-profit organization created to refurbish and repurpose computers, providing them to under resourced children as well as U.S. service personnel, spent the summer fulfilling numerous requests from children for refurbished computers, to help them get ready for back-to-school.
“The Clark County school system has seen a continual rise in the number of district students qualifying for federal programs,” explained John Iasiuolo, Outlook Foundation president and host of the Internet talk show, the Computer Outlook Show. “Our mission is to help these children who have demonstrated a financial need and do not have access to a computer in their home by donating refurbished computers.”
The Outlook Foundation is able to provide these computers through the generous donations of companies in the IT industry and corporations. Individuals and corporations can help support the Foundation by making monetary donations, volunteering their time, supporting fund-raising activities, donating computers and peripherals, and more.
“For a young student, a computer can give them access to a world of information and opportunity that can change their lives, and prepare them to compete in today’s economy,” Iasiuolo said. “A computer puts a world of information and opportunity at every child’s fingertips, and The Outlook Foundation wants to help open up that world to them.”
