Laptops for Seniors Field Test
The Masonic Angel Foundation is field testing a “Laptops for Seniors” project that will partner with area Senior Centers and Councils on Aging to place refurbished laptops with senior citizens who need computer access but cannot afford to obtain their own machine.  The project will also encompass seniors whose computer has broken and are not able to afford to replace it.  Senior Center staff will determine placements and will preserve the confidentiality of recipients. 

Laptops for Seniors is being field tested in Eastham, Dennis and Chatham, Massachusetts in partnership with Senior Centers in the respective communities.   

Many seniors who live in FHA subsidized housing may quality for Comcast’s Internet Essentials $9.95/month broadband access program. 

More information about Laptops for Seniors will be forthcoming at the conclusion of the field test.

If you would be interested in learning the laptop refurbishment process, please contact info@laptopsforkidz.org to volunteer.  Basic computer knowledge is required.  That means if you can use a Windows PC without injuring yourself or infecting the world with malware, you might be the type of volunteer we seek.

One of the great assets of Freemasonry is our cadre of retired gentlemen who have the time and expertise to be of service to children in need.  With new membership trends, we are also developing a good group of young computer professionals who belong to the Fraternity.  The availability of such volunteers is what will make this program succeed.

You may always call 774.274.0910 for additional information.
