2013-02-20 20:45:14 - Nonprofit Goshen Valley receives computer donation from local utility.

ATLANTA – February 20, 2013 – Goshen Valley Boys Ranch recently received 22 used Dell computers from electric utility Cobb EMC, a not-for-profit electric membership cooperative, with more than 196,000 meters representing 175,093 members in metro Atlanta and southwest Georgia.

For a decade, Goshen Valley Boys Ranch in Waleska, Ga., has provided a home for boys in foster care. Since opening its doors, the nonprofit has grown exponentially, but the technology has remained the same. Recognizing Goshen Valley’s need for updated technology, Cobb EMC Senior Vice President Technology Systems Robert Arnett contacted the Blends about donating the computers.

"After understanding the objectives of Goshen Valley Boys Ranch, I can't express how good it feels to be involved and make these kinds

of contributions to the program,” said Arnett. “These PC's were getting ready to be retired, but I knew they still had some life in them given the right environment.”

The donated computers were installed to replace older tech equipment in various homework labs and to provide staff members with functioning computers at the office.

"Goshen Valley is so grateful for these computers,” said Goshen Valley Boys Ranch Residential Life Director Zach Blend. “They have been used in our offices, homes and computer labs throughout the ranch. The computers meet our needs perfectly and we are so thankful for them.”
