Birthline accepts & stores donations of newborn essentials and food. Items are administered on computers. They process over 200 clients per month. Process and administration requires computers to schedule appoints and manage client database. Currently Birthline's computers & software are over 10 years old and are becoming obsolete. This has impacted delivery of services to client families and volunteers as well. The effect and has produced excessive frustration and productivity loss.
The purchase of five refurbished computers & software will eliminate the issues of client services delivery and donation management.
