Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner joined Central Management Services (CMS) Director Mike Hoffman and State Rep. Sara Wojcicki Jimenez Wednesday to highlight a partnership between state and federal surplus property programs and Computer Banc.

Computer Banc is a local non-for-profit that provides refurbished computers to at-risk families, seniors, special needs individuals as well as other non-for-profit agencies and schools.

The influx of computers will greatly assist Computer Banc’s “Pathway Tools for Early Learning” pilot program.

“Computers are essential for learning,” Governor Rauner said. “In order to give all of our children a high quality education it is critical we give them access to understand the use of computers in every way possible. That means we need to make sure all of our young people have outstanding computer and technology skills when they come through our education system. Thank you to Computer Banc for your work serving the people of Illinois.”

Mike Hoffman, Director of CMS added, “We’re pleased that CMS is able to play a part in supporting Illinois’ non-profit community by faciliating the transfer of these computers.”
