Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a Foothill Ranch-based technology firm, plans to donate 25 Fujitsu Lifebook laptop computers to Hawk Technology Trust, a non-profit organization at Laguna Hills High School(LHHS). The students will use the new laptops in the LHHS Technology Center.

“Fujitsu has a long history of working with schools to advance technology standards and availability of the latest hardware,” said Vic Herring, vice president of sales and marketing at Fujitsu. “Laguna Hills High School faced a crisis in their technology budget and we realized our participation would make a significant impact. We were happy to contribute.”

The California State budget crisis has affected schools state-wide and left LLHS lacking funds to update their Technology Center, according to Fujitsu. LHHS is working to become a paperless campus, further establishing the importance for students to be able to access online resources. According to the Hawk Technology Trust 23 percent of the students on campus do not have online access at home, making the Fujitsu Lifebook laptops even more essential to LHHS.

Sheri Sandler, chair of the Hawk Technology Trust, expresses the organization’s gratitude, “Fujitsu’s generous donation has made a significant impact on our ability to deliver on our goal, though we are still facing a steep climb to meet the ongoing updates for the Technology Center. We extend a heart-felt “Thank You!” to Fujitsu, and we are even more determined to forge ahead, searching for additional help.”
