Tech Company Donates 200 Computers to Vermont Family Services Nonprofit

A Vermont nonprofit that provides adoption and other services for families and expectant mothers now has 200 computers in hand, thanks to a local tech company.

Agilent Technologies Inc. donated 175 laptops and 25 desktop computers to the Lund Center in a ceremony at the social service provider’s South Burlington offices. The refurbished computers came from BioTek Instruments, which was recently acquired by Agilent.

“As part of our network transition., the Biotek employees chose to donate the computers, so it is an employee led initiative,” Ginger Cooper associate vice president of Agilent said. “They chose Lund based on the connection and knowing what Lund does for the community.”

One Agilent employee who attended Thursday’s ceremony has quite a history with Lund. As a child, Chrissy Reyome she was adopted from Lund. Last year, she adopted her son Cameron from the organization, too.

“Ever since I was little I wanted to be a mom,” Reyome said. “My dream came true because of the Lund home and it’s a blessing. What better gift is there than to be a mom or have someone help you become a mom and support you and be there for you through everything?”

Lund CEO Tricia Coates says the computers are another tool to help the organization fulfill it’s mission of providing child care, adoption and family education services. Coates says the computers will be a big help in utilizing the group’s new electronic records system and maintaining connections between staff and clients.

“This will fill an important need for technology that would have taken us 4-5 years to fill, in terms of ourreplacement schedule,” she said.
