At Clark Computer Services, we are proud of the deep and lasting relationships we have developed with our clients. We live and work in our service areas, so being able to leverage our client relationships to create meaningful connections in the community is extremely important to us. For example, since the very beginning, we have provided refurbished used-but-still-serviceable devices (with the owner’s permission) to those who have a limited income at no charge.
When Darren heard that the Lucas Village and Carver community centers in Frederick were having trouble with their WiFi, making it difficult for the kids to participate in remote learning, he decided to do something about it. Pulling the team at Clark Computer Services together, we discussed options, did a site visit to determine need, and put together a plan of action.
Donating time and materials, we purchased enough Ubiquiti WiFi hubs to cover the community centers and sent a technician out to install them. With high-speed access now available, the kids are back in the virtual classroom.
We put a video together. Please share with your friends and consider Donating to support their great work.
In 2014, we formalized this process through a relationship with SHIP — Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership — of Frederick County. SHIP’s mission is to help Frederick County’s homeless youth complete their educations, realize their best potential, and be poised to break the cycle of poverty they were born into. Providing refurbished computers to homeless students is one small way we can help these kids overcome the many barriers they face as they work toward academic success, on-time graduation, and better lives.
