Computer Donated to Neighbors of Hope Women’s and Children’s Ministry Center

The Neighbors of Hope Women’s and Children’s Ministry Center in Tecumseh received a computer as a gift from two area teens.

Sicakumar is a Junior at Ann Arbor Huron; and Brahmasandra is also a Junior, but attends Ann Arbor Pioneer.

Neighbors of Hope Director of Women & Children’s Ministry Cassie Hollenbeck described what the computer will be used for…

Wacker Chemical Corporation donated the monitor and the teens used their own money for the other parts. This was not their first computer donation, as they have built one for Catherine Cobb.
