Tech Donations Help Provide Shelter for Homeless in Barstow

Desert Manna in Barstow, California, provides emergency and short-term shelter for homeless men, women, and children. In 2008, the organization sheltered 613 people in need. It also helps the low-income community of Barstow with meals, emergency food boxes, showers, gas, transportation, and clothing. It supports roughly 4,000 people each month in the Barstow area. 

With the help of TechSoup, Desert Manna was able to obtain Microsoft Office 2007. By having this powerful tool, it is now able to more efficiently serve the neediest community members.
