Mike Hutchinson and other volunteers at the Suncoast Technology Users Group are accustomed to turning old technology into problems solved. 

But now they’re faced with a new problem: not enough technology to circulate back into the community.

The Sarasota-based nonprofit refurbishes and donates roughly 1,200 computers to people in need every year. This year, STUG has donated roughly half as many due to low numbers of requests and donations.

Estelle Sidler

A good friend of mine who is still working from home shared her family calendar on Facebook. Her three children have in-person school two days a week, and school at home for three days.
