Your interest and support ensured Monterey County Gives! had a record breaking year. Together, we empower our local nonprofit community
to be its best. Thank you!
-The Monterey County Gives! team.
Loaves, Fishes and Computers' (LFC) mission is to help individuals and families in our community overcome the digital and economic divides by providing low-to-no-cost computer systems, digital literacy classes, hands-on technology workshops, and technology assistance/computer repair for low-income individuals, families, seniors, veterans, children, people with disabilities and nonprofit organizations, while providing volunteers an encouraging and gratifying place to learn about Computer Science and Information Technology, and, with the help of academic partnering organizations, engage in exciting, new education and career opportunities.
The pandemic demonstrated that we can study, work, learn, get medical advice, social assistance and communicate with our families and friends ONLY if we are fortunate to have computing technology and the skills to use these effectively. LFC continues its technology support for the most underserved and underrepresented individuals and families throughout Monterey County. In 2021 we increased the numbers of computers distributed—over 1,200; the number of classes we taught—over 600; the numbers of students, youth, adults and seniors that we’ve helped—over 9,500; and the numbers of organizations we work with from North to South county to Salinas and the Peninsula, offering their constituents computing devices, digital fluency and digital citizenship classes. Your support will allow LFC to expand its services to help everyone cross from the digital divide to digital inclusion and equity
“I was treated by the most friendliest (sic) people, and great customer service. They really offer great quality computers at affordable prices!" Thanks LFC!
