Newburyport boy offers low-cost computers to those in need

(Continued)

A vice president of marketing at Vicor Corp. in Andover, Gendron was educated as an electrical engineer and knows his way around a computer himself.

He has reached out to the YWCA in Newburyport and YMCA in Haverhill to see who might be in need of a system and said the next big challenge is finding local companies that might be looking to recycle their old computers.

“If they have an issue with what do they do with their old computers,” Gendron said, “we will take their old and tired computers and wipe the hard drive and put in a new operating system and get them to families in the community.

“If they have a computer and they don’t know what to do with it, they can contact Ryan via the website, and we will come out and take it.”
