Illinois veterans' organizations get computers from state


Four hundred surplus computers will be donated to veterans' organizations around the state to help with online training and internet-based employment assistance.

"We are proud to be the first state to offer a joint computer donation program to help serve those who made the most difficult sacrifices to serve our country," Illinois Department of Central Management Services Director Malcolm Weems said. "These computers will help organizations provide critical job-training assistance to our returning veterans. CMS will continue to identify surplus property that can benefit veterans and communities across Illinois."

The donated computers have been refurbished by a vendor approved by the U.S. General Services Administration and each has been equipped with Windows 7 and feature free asset recovery.
