NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - If you get a new computer this holiday season, consider donating the old one to a family in need.

WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reports

Getting a computer not only brought Elender Foxe and her family into the 21st century, it changed their lives.

“Cause you know how it is when you don’t have a computer,” Foxe told WCBS 880 reporter Peter Haskell. “You have to go to the library… You run out of time.”

The computer was given to her daughter, who is a middle school student.

It came from Per Scholas, a non-profit in the Bronx.

“Technology is not a nice thing to make sure everybody has. It’s the right thing,” Per Scholas president Plinio Ayala says.

Ayala said the computers are donated by individuals in corporations.
