St. Mary’s Bank Announces $2,500 Grant to CTAC

Funds will help provide computer repair services to in-need Greater Manchester residents

Manchester – St. Mary’s Bank has announced a $2,500 grant to the not-for-profit Computer Technology Assistance Corps (CTAC), of Goffstown.The money will help cover the cost of computer repair services for underserved and low-income residents in the Greater Manchester area.

The Computer Technology Assistance Corps restores and refurbishes recently retired computers donated by businesses and individuals, and then distributes the computers at a minimal cost to low-income households, not-for-profits, community service organizations, schools and other groups.

CTAC also provides low-income individuals with training and support services, including computer repairs and upgrades.

“Our organization was founded to help low-income families afford their own computers, and learn how to use them,” says Steven Bothwick, CTAC Executive Director. “As we all know, with computer ownership comes the occasional need for repairs or upgrading, and this grant will help make up the difference between a client’s ability to pay for repairs to their computer and our real costs to do those repairs.”

“We are pleased to support CTAC as it works towards its goal of providing access to digital technology to all Manchester residents, regardless of their financial challenges,” says Tom Champagne, St Mary’s Bank Director of Community Outreach. “In this ‘high tech’ age, learning how to use a computer is an essential first-step toward entering the workforce or updating job skills.”
