Computer Resources For Students and Low-Income Families
Due to the COVID 19, now more than ever it is important to stay connected, and safe. As more of us are working and learning from home, finding the resources we need can prove to be difficult as we all move forward. With this in mind, the chamber has compiled a listing of free, low cost, and borrow-able computer providers as well as affordable internet options. We hope this list is of some assistance and will update as more information becomes available. Thank you.
