"Laptops on Loan" - Ham Club Connects with Local School

High school students in Floyd County, Virginia, whose families cannot afford to buy a home computer may now turn to the Floyd Amateur Radio Society's "Laptops on Loan" program for assistance. The club is making several laptops available on a long-term loan basis to qualifying students. They must complete an application, have their parents' permission, stay in school and promise to return the computer at the end of the loan and not sell it. The club is accepting donations of used, functioning laptops in order to expand the program. To find our more, visit the FARS website at <> or contact Tom King, W4VZH, at <>.
