PC Power, a local non-profit organization that provides refurbished computers to at-risk children, has partnered with the Tulsa Police Department and area law enforcement agencies to deliver 100 computers to children in the Tulsa area.
During the weeks before Christmas officers from Tulsa Police Department, Tulsa County Sheriff's Office, Jenks Campus Police, Tulsa Public Schools Police, Broken Arrow, Sapulpa, Coweta, Bixby, and Sand Springs Police Department began work on the 10th Annual North Pole Computer Project. This year the Cherokee, Creek, and Osage Nations Tribal Police joined the project.
PC Power was founded by retired Tulsa Police Officer Glenn DeWeese, when he began building computers for needy children as a Christmas project in 2003. The original Computers for Kids project evolved into a year-round operation that has provided computers for over 1000 families. This year's donated computers will be used by over 200 children.
