Alan’s Affordable Organizes Fundraiser

The local computer shop sell computers and gives to those in need  

Alan’s Affordable Computers is a personable Stone Ridge computer store filled with a variety of Mac and PC computers. Owner Alan Marker claims he can find anyone the right computer for his or her needs and budget—staying true to his business name.
But Alan is much more than your ordinary businessman; he is a philanthropist. Alan began a foundation, Computers 4 the Needy, as his way of contributing to the quality of life of individuals in need. With the help of our supportive community, he has donated over 800 computers to charities, schools, senior citizens, and veterans groups, and these donations are changing people’s lives. School children who never had access to technology are now holding technology in their hands.
Alan suggests to “reflect upon the many things you are able to do with your computer and how much it is a part of your life. Now, imagine how your life would be without a computer.” Our access to information is vital to our ability to keep up with opportunity in today’s world. Computers 4 the Needy is dedicated to helping bridge the gap between those individuals who have a computer and those who do not.
Alan’s Affordable Computers and WKZE 98.1 FM are sponsoring a benefit concert and dance party for three local organizations. Bring your old and new computers and monitors for Computers 4 the Needy, bring non-perishable food donations for the Rondout Valley Food Pantry, and bring your dancing shoes! A portion of the proceeds will also support the Kripplebush Fire House.
