Tuesday, February 27, 2001

World Harvest Christian Academy recently received help from HUD's Ohio Office, which provided 20 excess computers ready for pick-up by the Academy School. The faith-based Academy includes day care, elementary and high schools, and a Bible College.

As a result of their outreach and coordination, outdated HUD hardware will be transformed into a gateway of modern learning, enabling the Academy to place one PC in each of its elementary school classrooms.
