Military base gives computers to schools

January 14, 2005

Lowndes County - A South Georgia military base is helping kids get a better education.

Friday, airmen at Moody Air Force Base filled a van full of computers for students in Lanier County schools. The donation is part of a program that allows government agencies to give used property to local schools.

"Rather than taking them and basically destroying or recycling them and trying to pull all the bits and pieces out, these computers are perfectly usable and we can give them to local school districts, it doesn't cost them a dime and it helps them out," said Lt. Col. Kevin Mastin.

Thirty computers were donated today. The base will give about 170 more to other schools in South Georgia.
