Community Service

Your Club is very active and busy providing help in our local community.  There is so much we can do, as individuals and as a club, to make a difference. 

You can be very proud to tell your friends and neighbors about the activities Your Club has done and keeps doing in our community.  Just look at some of the past accomplishments and great things going on today…….   

Here are some of the activities your Club accomplished that you can be proud to tell your friends and neighbors:

 

Give us your old unwanted PC. We will clean it out and donate it to one of the local schools to support their Parent- Teacher Activities.
We collect Box Tops for Education. This turns into cash money for school activities. Drop of your coillections!

Our club took on the maintenance of one of the Gardens at the Nature Coast Botanical Gardens. The Garden Committee meets the 1rst Wednesday of each month at 9am to weed and feed our garden plot. After wards we all go for breakfast and have a good time.

At Christmas time we do a big food drive. The photo shows the display at the Christmas party. Local schools will distribute the items to children in our County.
We also take it on the decorate a tree at the Botanical Gardens for their Christmas Tree decorating event.
This is our Angel which is our entry to the Angel On High Community event.
HCC Members donate idle PC time for scientific research
On a regular basis members have made visits to ARC Nature Coast in both Spring Hill and Brooksville.  They do projects and demonstrate computer activities to adults with disabilities.
Members provided computer advice and assistance to the Boys and Girls Club of Hernando County.
Your Club donated money to the Shriner’s Hospital.
Your Club donated a computer system to High Point’s computer club to help their small organization offer computer classes.
Your Club donated Sophisticated “Zoom Text” software to the Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired so they could offer training to people in Hernando County with visual limitations.
Members gathered school supplies and donated them to East Side Elementary School.  With budget and funding cuts, their need is greater than ever so please consider helping.  We continue to collect school supplies, Box Tops for Education and Campbell Soup labels.
Your Club donated a complete computer system for a student at East Side Elementary School who’s family does not have financial means.   Happily, that computer helped a family with 3 children, who all benefitted.  One child was in elementary, another in middle and the oldest in high school.

Most recently, we have adopted the Dawn Center.  The domestic and sexual violence shelter of Hernando County.  Check out their website to learn more and see their ‘wish list’ of needs. http://www.dawncenter.org/.

On April 20, 2009 your Club presented a computer to the Dawn Center  along with handmade children’s quilts, food and money donated by members.   You can bring donations to the Club whenever you visit and THANK YOU for caring.

Let’s make 2010 another great year for the Hernando Computer Club and the Community Service it performs.  Please offer your help and suggest opportunities where the Club can make a difference.
