Ashbury Senior Computer Community Center letter of support and thanks to CAP

CAP was happy to upgrade the lab of the very important, and very busy, Ashbury Senior Computer Community Center at 11011 Ashbury Ave. in Cleveland.

Their mission is “To bridge the gap in the “Digital Divide” in our inner-city communities by providing high quality, accessible, and free technology classes in a supportive, appropriately-paced, and nurturing environment – that encourages personal growth and enhances the quality of life for all participants.”

CAP provided 32 computers with Windows 7 that let Ashbury completely upgrade their community center lab.  Here is a nice thank you letter of support from Wanda Davis of Ashbury.

Tech volunteers help local non-profit

Cleveland (July 20, 2014): Computers Assisting People (CAP) Inc. has a new modern website thanks to
the talented volunteers at Cleveland GiveCamp.
CAP is a Cleveland Ohio non-profit whose volunteers have refurbished and donated over 15,000 PCs to
over 450 local schools and non-profits. CAP volunteers are mainly skilled in computer hardware so their
website was not as modern and updated as they would have liked.

The mission of Cleveland GiveCamp is to pair creative and technology talent with nonprofits in need.
GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, database administrators,
project managers and creative professionals donate their time to create software and web-based
applications for non-profit organizations. The event takes place at the LeanDog Boat (former
Hornblowers) and Burke Lakefront Airport on the shores of Lake Erie.

The Cleveland GiveCamp volunteers who worked on the project over the weekend were led by Project
Manager Howard Pearce and included developers Matt Luceen, David Perish, Michael Smith and Bill
Davis and Designer Sarah Morgenstein.

They built a modern new site using the popular WordPress platform. Visit the new CAP website at
www.capinc.org. Learn more about Cleveland GiveCamp at http://clevelandgivecamp.org.
