Most people, especially kids, have had a lot more spare time during summer 2020 due to the pandemic. Some are using that time to take their natural skills and make a positive impact on their community.
Like this 15-year-old computer wiz in Jacksonville, Florida. He has been using his time to refurbish old computers and donate them to kids who don’t have one. His name is Chris Kilpatrick, and he’s done about 20 machines so far. They’re all going to kids involved in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. It started out as an idea he got while doing his summer internship with a company that takes old electronics and recycles them, or sells the parts. Which he saw as an opportunity to help people during these crazy times we’re living in.
Well done, Chris. Such a cool idea that’s making a huge difference for so many kids.
