The Eastlake Public Library recently hosted an event organized by a national nonprofit, PCs for People, to give people in need access to digital technology and help them reach their full potential. Through the pop-up shop, visitors could connect with PCs for People representatives, complete an application, and find out if they qualified for low-cost refurbished computers and internet connections.
Tyia Powell, community impact manager for the Cleveland location of PCs for People, spoke about the nonprofit’s mission to bridge the digital divide and ensure everyone can access the resources they need to succeed. The event was a testament to the power of digital technology to empower and uplift individuals and communities and to the importance of ensuring that everyone has equal access to these resources.
