Aaron Collins Wish for the Homeless and Those in Need

In Honor of Aaron Collins’ Last Wishes

Update 11/5/12: In honor of Aaron Collins, with the help of our great customers, Computers Plus Repair was able to donate $165 to Lighthouse Ministries to support local people in need, and $150 to fully fund a micro loan for Zewde Metaferia of Ethiopia to purchase an ox to help her cultivate her family’s land and transport her crops to market. “The increased income from agriculture will go towards giving my children a more nutritious diet, keeping them in school and paying for medicine. In the long term I hope to carry on developing my business to get more income,” she said.

It was one of Aaron’s last wishes that part of his legacy would be to help the hungry, homeless, and people in need. In honor of our friend and family member Aaron Collins, who worked at Computers Plus Repair up until he died suddenly July 7, we will be donating 10% of store proceeds through the end of August to Lighthouse Ministries in Lexington, KY and to World Vision.

Lighthouse Ministries, started in 1993, is a non-profit corporation based in Lexington that serves local people in need. Their mission is “to meet the practical and spiritual needs of those in crisis situations, resulting in ‘changed lives for a lifetime'”. They minister to the homeless, poor, addicted and anyone in need that God sends their way.

World Vision is an international Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. They are dedicated to working with the world’s most vulnerable people. “We serve all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.”

World Vision has a four out of four star rating on CharityNavigator.org.

We hope this can be another way for Aaron’s life to leave a positive impact on others, and by helping those who are in need.
