CARBONDALE (WSIL) -- The Carbondale Towers is stepping up to help their residents stay connected.
They are partnering with PC's for People to provide affordable technology services to residents below the 200 percent poverty level or who are currently enrolled in an income based government assistance program. The apartment's service coordinator says the pandemic has severely limited the use of public computers and it's been tough on residents.
"They have been staying in their house as much as possible so that means not seeing loved ones or family. If they had a computer they could virtually see their friends. A lot of them want to either go up town to use the free wifi or the library to use a computer and right now they're not wanting to do that," says Amber Aden, Service Coordinator for the Carbondale Towers.
Aden says their goal is to raise 39 hundred dollars for refurbished laptops and hot spot devices. If you wish to donate to the cause click here.
