60 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, September I - Monday, September 4, 2006 AstraZenca donates 23 laptops to KINfolk Computers help sick children keep in touch KINfolk recently announced a contribution of $10,000 and 23 laptops from AstraZeneca, which will further its mission of helping seriously ill children in Delaware to stay connected to their families, friends and teachers. Since 1999, KINfolk has lent laptop computers, with free inter- net accounts, to seriously ill or injured children throughout the country. AstraZeneca has been KINfolk's largest supplier of used laptop computers for the past six years, making KINfolk's Delaware-based program its largest. AstraZeneca also pro- vides funds to support costs of operating the laptop-lending pro- gram throughout the state. "We are so grateful for alF-fl AstraZeneca has done for us as we strive to keep hundreds of sick children connected to those who lov them during hospitalization and_medical treatment," said Linda folk's executive director. 'Tie have children- who have been able to graduate with their high school classes because they had a laptop that was donated by AstraZeneca." "At AstraZeneca, we are com- mired to improving the health of our community by making health care a more personal experience for patients and their families," said Irene Fick, director of Health and Community Alliances, AstraZeneca. "That is why we are thrilled that these computers help children throughout Delaware to stay in touch with loved ones and continue their education while receiving medical treatment." Don Hobson, an AstraZeneca retiree and KINfolk board mem* ber, was instrumental in establish- ing the relationship between the two organizations in 2000. "This donation of 23 laptops includes licenses for Windows 2000 Pro software," said Hobson. "The laptops usually do not come with an operating software so this will save us hours by not having to download drivers to cre- ate operating systems in each machine." Another major KINfolk corpo- rate partner in Wilmington is Verizon, which has provided free dial-up internet accounts since KINfolk's founding in 1999. For more information, visit www.kinfolknet.org.
