Literacy involves much more than just reading. Literacy means being able to function in today's world, and that involves using a computer. The Literacy Council accepts computers to recycle and donate back to low-income families as a Community Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher (MAR). We also offer classes for people who would like basic computer skills.
LCA: A Microsoft Authorized Registered Refurbisher
The Literacy Council of Alaska has been accepted as a Community Microsoft Authorized Registered Refurbisher Program. As a authorized Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, the Literacy Council of Alaska has the privilege of installing Microsoft Windows software on used computers to be given away to local consumers, as well as to qualified charities, non-profits, schools.
Microsoft created this program to increase the number of usable Personal Computers (PCs) available to qualified recipients across the globe by reducing the cost of software to refurbishers. The Microsoft Registered Refurbisher Program also benefits the environment by giving new life to a significant number of computers that could otherwise be destined for landfills.
The Literacy Council of Alaska also offers basic computer training classes and tutoring for those in the community who are in need of computer literacy training.
Beginner computer tutoring and classes: call 456-6212 to schedule an appointment or tutoring session.
LCA accepts computer donations of desktops and laptops that are 5 years old or newer. Due to space limitations, we are not accepting any other donations at this time. Every donated computer is reformatted; that is, all hard drives are erased completely before they are refurbished and given out.
LCA has taken a great step toward providing computers for so many people of Alaska.
