🕐 1 min read

The Fort Worth City Council accepted a donation of 60 Macbook Pro laptops from the Facebook Corp. to provide technology for the city’s community centers.

“Yes, indeed, and thank you, Facebook,” Mayor Betsy Price said after the vote was unanimously approved.

The laptops are valued at about $101,090. They include 15 MacBook Pro 13 computers and 45 MacBook Pro 15 styles. The 18 community centers with the greatest volume of use will receive three laptops each, and the remaining three centers will receive two laptops each.

“These laptops will give Fort Worth’s youth, teens, adults and seniors additional access to technology and online resources. Our community centers do a great job of creating programs and special-interest classes, such as a technology class for seniors and utilizing online learning resources for our children,” Price said. “I’m so grateful for the strong community involvement from companies like Facebook based in Fort Worth.”

The Facebook Data Center, in the Alliance area, is the fifth for the company across the nation. It will include five buildings and up to 2.5 million square feet.
