MRC Donation Helps Mississippi BoyChoir

In Jackson Mississippi can be found the Mississippi Boychoir. For the past 26 years they have trained young boys with talent to sing and to provide them with the opportunity to sing inside and outside the state.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 has restricted their community presentations. So, like good Netcitizens, they want to do concerts online. But lacking the technical stuff makes that a bit difficult.

I do not know how they found the Clinic, but the leader of the group for overseas operations wrote MacRecycleClinic a letter. Her request arrived at the same time that we were collecting Macintosh equipment from The River School in Washington, DC.

I was able to match the specifications for the online Macintosh music production application donated to them with one of the iMac models from River School. With an iMac that fit their needs, the BoyChoir paid to package and ship the computer with keyboard and mouse to Jackson.

Over the last three decades, MacRecycleClinic has donated refurbished Mac laptops, desktops, towers and Mac Minis to those who don’t have computers or who want to put together a lab for students who may not have home Internet. We recently started refurbishing Chromebooks as well. There is a great need.

The BoyChoir is a great example of a non-profit with a need that we are thrilled to help. Their YouTube channel will show you what a great choir this really is. If we could make just a small contribution for their December program, we were thrilled to do it!
