Laptops for Seniors Field
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.
