Allen Ginsberg, a former engineer at Sunstrand Aviation (UTC), established Rockford Computers for Schools (RCFS) in 1997. RCFS provided computers for schools and other educational purposes in the Rockford area.  Computers donated from individuals and businesses were refurbished by RCFS volunteers.  Over 8,155 computers have been supplied.  More than 550 tons of computer equipment were accepted for recycling.  This kept that material out of landfills.

Thanks to the many organizations and individual who donated computer material, which helped RCFS over 20 years.  Many thanks to all of the volunteers who donated many hours of their time for this 501 3© organization
