This Holiday season, Log Camp is asking you to become a hero. For just $350, you can put a brand-new laptop into the hands of an underserved youth living right here in Multnomah County.

Your laptop gift will connect a disconnected youth to endless possibilities, enabling them to begin coding, use free open curriculum, and gain coaching, and training.

Your generous gift today brings us all one step closer to making digital inclusion a reality for all children who live in Multnomah County.

You'll also move us closer to our goal of raising $45,000 this Holiday season, providing 100 laptops to youth in need before New Years Day 2016.

Youth We Serve

Multnomah County Youth

Laptops are a powerful creative tool

Laptops provide youth with the ability to learn how to code, developing websites, web and mobile apps, and games. Giving a laptop to a youth also allows them to develop critical thinking and problem skills through self-led project-based experiential learning.

Without a laptop of their own, young coders are unable to code projects, access open-source and paid curriculum, access tools, connect with mentors.

With your generosity this Holiday season, you'll partner with Log Camp to provide a laptop to one of hundred diverse, low-income youth in need before January 1st, 2016.
