Computers donated to Colorado Springs students in need

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

Computers were donated to 100 students at Mitchell High School in Colorado Springs Tuesday.

The money to get the refurbished computers was a collective effort by Pikes Peak United Way, "PCs for People" and other companies and individuals in the community.

This is all part of the Colorado Springs Promise Project which aims to help lower income students in the area.

Teachers at Mitchell High School nominated the students based on need and some of the kids had to write essays on their cell phones.

Pikes Peak United Ways says the free computers will help students and other family members with homework, college applications and job searches.
