FAYETTEVILLE,Dell Computers and Operation Homelink recently provided 150 families of 82nd Airborne Division paratroopers with computers as part of an effort to help them stay in touch with soldiers stationed overseas.

The refurbished computers were provided at no costs.

The program was launched in April of 2004.

“Dell is committed to supporting our troops and helping to ensure that those who need technology have access to it,” said Troy West, vice-president of Dell Federal. “Our partnership with Operation Homelink provides an opportunity for us to act on both of these commitments, and we’re proud to once again support Operation Homelink’s important work.”

Operation Homelink is seeking additional donations. For information, see: www.operationhomelink.com
