BRIEF: Christian Center Church donates computer

Nov 07, 2012 (Jackson County Floridan - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Chipola Family Ministries Director Fred Cook was despondent over the loss of the Ministries computer in a burglary Sunday night. But thanks to a local church, he has a new one. Christian Center Church donated the computer Tuesday morning. And, since it's a laptop he can take home at night, he won't have to worry about anyone stealing from his office overnight.

Cook said the new one is a major upgrade from his old desktop computer. It has a newer version of Windows, is faster and has more storage on the hard drive.

The theft of the computer, along with some cash from an interior office, had threatened to slow the Ministries work at a very busy time of year. Families are in special need during the holidays, and the organization is winding up a food drive to help them put turkeys on the Christmas and Thanksgiving tables of roughly 520 families.

Donations of money to buy the turkeys, or outright donation of birds has almost closed the gap. As of Monday, the community had given enough to take care of all but about 70 families.

The donation of the computer has taken some of the remaining burden off the organization's shoulders.
