HOUSTON — As Houston’s Education Station, KHOU 11 is committed to doing our part to close the education gap and provide students with the resources they need to be successful in the classroom.
Tens of thousands of students in the Houston area lack the basic tools they need to do their schoolwork from home, but we can make a difference.
You or your company can help by donating any laptops, desktops, or monitors that are less than 5 years old to the non-profit CompUDopt.
Visit khou.com/computers for information on how to help, and include “KHOU 11” in the description notes for device donations.
Donated devices help our resources go further so that we can bring technology access to more students and families.
Most importantly, your gift ensures children will have the tools and resources they need for a 21st century education and the ability to compete in an increasingly technological world.
Are you a family or student in need of a computer?
You can register to get a computer through the Comp-U-Dopt website.
Visit www.compudopt.org and select the location nearest you from the drop-down list.
Then on that page, as you scroll down, there will be a big blue button that says Register for the Lottery. Click this and complete the form to be entered.
Please be aware that this is a lottery and not a waitlist. Not everyone will get a computer, but it's best to be entered to win.
If you have more questions you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Thank you for helping us Stand for Houston!
