The Office of Community Care is partnering with Comp-U-Dopt and TXU to provide 250 free laptops to Dallas families that do not already have a computer in the home.
Interested residents can visit www.compudopt.org/dallas to register to participate in the laptop lottery. Those selected to receive computers will be contacted with directions on how to obtain the computer once registration is closed and recipients have been selected. Registration does not guarantee receipt of a computer.
To be eligible, families must have at least one elementary, middle, or high school student, reside within the City of Dallas, and be without access to a working computer at home. Devices provided by the school should not be counted, as they are not owned by the family. For more information, contact the Office of Community Care Director, Jessica Galleshaw, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
