Ensuring that even those on the tightest budgets can afford to stay connected during the holiday season, one Montgomery County nonprofit organization is refurbishing old computers and turning them into a low-cost option, writes Mike Dougherty for CBS Philly.

Team Children has been bringing old computers back to life for years inside a warehouse in Audobon.

“We add RAM. We exchange the hard drives. We make sure that everything is working. We install Windows 10,” said Robert Toporek, the founder of Team Children.

He added that the organization currently has close to 500 computers that are looking for a new home. While they are not completely free, they are as low-cost as possible with pricing starting as low as $65.

Voya Financial‘s employees are also helping Team Children achieve its goals.

“It’s a team building exercise for us and it gives us the good feeling of doing something for somebody who needs it,” said Alan Crawford of Voya.

Anyone who is looking to donate their old desktop or laptop, or needs a low-cost computer can visit the Team Children website or call 610-666-1795.
