The DI :: Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre
In honour of selling our first 100 shirts we donated $100 to The Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre. After contacting them and discussing which program was the least funded and needed the most attention, we learned that the Computers for Low Income Calgarians (CLIC) program was at highest risk of being cut. This program provides home computers to individuals and families in need—for free.
Through the Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher Program we were able to buy 20 Windows licenses to help continue this program.
The CLIC program also offers computer maintenance training to low income individuals to save time and money. This amazing program allows people in need to gain access to their own computer and training to better themselves, their situation and families.
Help this underfunded program out by donating or dropping off a used computer. More information on this program, great reasons to donate and training can be found at:
