tablet donation for homeless count

  • 1.  tablet donation for homeless count

    I am coordinating the annual point in time homeless count in central oregon. We switched to an app last year from paper forms, but volunteers are using their personal cell phones.

    we have heard other localities have had success getting donations of tablets for this. We would need 20-30 and wondering if anyone has any bright ideas on access. They don't have to have cellular connectivity, but I've already asked all the cell phone companies in the area...

    any ideas on how to secure a donation? thanks

    Have you looked into applying for a grant to cover the cost? That's how we've been able to make some technology purchases.
