Mesa Water District and T2 Tech Group donate computers to nonprofits

Mesa Water District (Mesa Water®), which services parts of Newport Beach, along with long-standing partner, T2 Tech Group, an industry-leading IT consulting, advisory and project management services provider in Los Angeles, have come together to donate more than 70 computers to two Southern California-based nonprofit organizations. The two companies donated 30 laptops to Schools on Wheels, a nonprofit organization that provides free tutoring and mentoring to children whose homelessness prevents them from receiving academic stability, and more than 40 desktop computers to Children’s Bureau, a nonprofit leader in protecting vulnerable children through prevention, treatment and advocacy.

Mesa Water District, which provides high-quality water to businesses and 110,000 Orange County residents and unincorporated areas, provided the gently used, professional quality devices, while the T2 Tech team donated its time and expertise to safely wipe and prepare the computers to be donated in like-new condition. The T2 Tech team also handled prepping, boxing and shipping all of the donated laptops and computers to the two nonprofit organizations.

“As children continue to adjust to distance learning, we understand the importance of technology to stay connected during these times,” said Kevin Torf, managing partner of T2 Tech Group. “The lack of access to computers is an ongoing challenge faced by many nonprofit organizations and the at-risk youth they serve. We specifically sought out these organizations given their respective missions of supporting children during these difficult times and beyond.”

The laptops donated to School on Wheels will be directly distributed to the students it serves across six counties throughout Southern California. The organization uses laptops and other technology resources to better address students’ academic needs and help teach technology skills through its network of online tutors. Meanwhile, the majority of desktops donated to Children’s Bureau will be used by its Los Angeles-based staff to ensure the organization can continue to effectively and efficiently serve at-risk children and their families throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
