Rebuilt computers find their way into student's homes through TAP's Volunteer Spirits and Volunteer Spirit to thousands of students

She's only 8 years old and now Anna Belle Lee of Loudon County has her very own computer system at home.

Anna Belle says, "I'm excited, very excited. I appreciate that they picked me and I am so excited I got a computer."

Members of the Technology Access Program of the Tellico Village Computer Users Club presented the third grade student with the Dell system at the Good Samaritan Center of Loudon County.

Vincent Alline of TAP says, "This is a little over 3,000 computers we've given away and it never gets old. There's no better feeling in the world and makes us want to go back and keep working on them."

He adds, "Our (TAP) function is to receive donated computers and accessories and assemble them into complete systems and donate them to families who are referred to us."

Anna Belle's mother, Tonya Lee told the group, "Thank you is not enough, but thank you for picking Belle. The schools are going more computer and i think that helps her a lot at home."

Belle says she is looking forward to playing games when her family gets the computer hooked up at home!
