American Eagle Financial Credit Union donated eight used personal computers, monitors, keyboards, mice, and cables to the nonprofit Veterans Inc. The equipment will be refurbished with new hard drives and operating software for use at their 20-room veterans transition home in New Britain, CT.
“Our goal is to place a computer in each room at the shelter for the residents to use for education, job search, support services, and more to get them working and living independently, and to achieve stability in their lives. The generous donation of these computers by American Eagle is a big start toward that goal and is helping many veterans in the future,” said Daniel Walsh, Connecticut Regional Manager with Veterans Inc.
Headquartered in Worcester, MA, Veterans Inc. is New England’s leading provider of support services to veterans and their families. A 501(c)(3) non-profit, the organization’s mission is to be there for veterans in their time of need. Since 1990, Veterans Inc. has helped more than 85,000 veterans and today operates offices and programs in all six New England states.
