A group of 25 children entering eighth grade received free computers Tuesday at North School after completing a two-week computer course taught by Uneed2, a local nonprofit. Uneed2 also provides mentoring and teaches entrepreneurial skills. The course was offered in collaboration with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tracy North School site and was the first class with the Tracy Unified School District as a vendor. In August, Uneed2 will give away 100 donated and refurbished computers to students between 13 and 18 years old during a back-to-school event. To be eligible, students must not have a computer at home. Students can apply until Aug. 15, and recipients will be notified by Aug. 18. Applications are available at the Larch-Clover Community Center, 11157 W. Larch Road; the Community Partnership for Families, 35 E. 10th St.; and the UPS Store, 1852 W. 11th St. For more information, call Uneed2 at 812-1771 or visit www.uneed2.org.
