Our History The journey to what is now Phoenix Computers began in 1995, six weeks after Gerry Rosenkrantz retired from FEMA.  Working alone, he began refurbishing computers for use at the Legal Aid Bureau in Prince George’s County and The Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School.  Soon, he was volunteering with Montgomery County Schools in the Computers for Classrooms program refurbishing computers for use in the school system. In 1997 he took over the Computers for Teachers program at  Lone Oak Elementary School and the CPCUG computer  refurbishing program named Project Reboot.  In 2002 Gerry  and Project Reboot relocated to a county owned house in  downtown Rockville,Md. where the number of volunteers and  refurbished computers continued to increase.  In January 2009, Project Reboot, volunteers and computers moved to a  warehouse facility located with the assistance of County Executive Isiah  Leggett and the Montgomery County Council.  In the fall of 2012 a core  group of senior volunteers and Gerry founded a new organization, separate  from CPCUG carrying forth the same mission and goals of refurbishing  computers for the needy in the community.  We currently have a stable  group of around 20 volunteers who test, certify the hardware and refurbish  PCs, laptops and printers.  Since we began as Phoenix Computers we have provided computers to  over 10,000 clients and other non profit organizations along with printers,  monitors, keyboards and mice.
