Computers for Christmas

We are introducing a new program for Christmas, where you will have the opportunity to adopt a computer for a child. With an individual donation of $10, you will enable Computers for Charity provide children and families in need in our communities with computers.

We have a limited number of Apple e Mac 1.4 Ghz Computers with 512 MB RAM and 80 GB Hard Disks. These are All in one systems that are still popular in a lot of schools. Donors will have the opportunity to nominate a child of their choosing to receive these very special Computers for Christmas!

What we need the churches to do:

We need two things from the Churches who would like to become Participating Organizations:
  • Identifiy families in need in your congregation and communities
We need you to host the Family Nomination Request List to have families who would like to be nominated to receive a computer. (The Family Nomination Request List is used to help donors choose a family to nominate.)
  • Finding donors who will adopt the computers for these families
Find a donor to adopt a computer for that family. You church can do this in any way it sees fit, (announcements, bulletins, Internet, phone calls, etc.) The donor will receive the Certificate of Adoption and the Family Nomination Form. He can then nominate a family or pick one from the Family Nomination Request List

We will provide you with the Certificates of Adoption and Family Nomination Forms. Those two documents are tied together by a Unique ID number. Please do not make copies of these forms! This will help us to eliminate fraud as people come to receive their computers. If a Unique ID has already been used we know that someone has tried to make copies to receive a computer fraudulently.The families will bring the Family

Nomination Form with the signature of the donor and the Participating Organization to pick up their computer at Turning Point United Methodist Church on a Tuesday between 4 and 6 PM. We will have these boxed, wrapped and ready to go under the Christmas tree!

    How to become a Participating Organization

    If your church would like to participate in the program or would like some more information, please contact us at: We will provide a package of information to get you started!

    We will also list Participating organizations on our website so that families will know where to go to sign up for their Computer for Christmas!
