Click Club in Boca Raton

BOCA RATON, Fla. — The Click Club in Boca Raton is a group of teenagers that are using their passion for technology to help the community.

The group will take old or broken computers and donate them to people in need. On Monday, they donated three computers to Regents Park of Boca Raton nursing home.

“Our main goal is just to give back to the people,” said Click Club creator Nick Horowitz.

Horowitz is a 16-year-old sophomore at St. Andrews and loves computers. He said he took his love for them and turned it into something good.

“You see everyone talk about how the future generations are going to be able to use computers to their advantage, and I think it is cool to show the past generations how it works and how to use their passions,” said Horowitz.

The club teaches the residents computer basics.

The Director of Activities at Regents Park, Robin Gardiner, said the donation is amazing.

“We do have residents that have individual tablets and iPhone and iPads but we do not have a generalized computer area which is really great that we want t put in our cream parlor for everyone to enjoy,” she said.

The Click Club will return to give more lessons to the residents at Regents Park, and they will find other places to donate.

The group says they always need more computers, they take new, old, or broken ones.
