WE NEED TWO MAC COMPUTERS DONATED!!!!!!! If you have a fairly recent G4 or G5 Mac that you would like to donate and for which you would receive tax credit, please contact our offices. A recent version of the mini, or a laptop, would be excellent, but a tower would be great as well with a decent, flat panel monitor.
