The Los Altos Rotary is raising money to purchase multi-functioning LiveScrive smartpens and tablets to help make learning easier for Veterans Center students at Foothill College. The event will include live music, refreshments, door prizes and a special demonstration of how the LiveScribe smartpen works.
The smartpen has proven popular with students with special needs and veterans with injuries or conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder. Students can use the pen to record lectures, take notes and send emails or illustrations to Facebook or other sites.
Pens cost $150 each. Donations are tax deductible and accepted in any amount. Send donations to the Los Altos Rotary Endowment Fund, P.O. Box 794, Los Altos, CA 94023-0794. Write "Smart Pens for Vets" in the memo line. Donation drop-off locations include Go Go Gyro, 4546 El Camino Real, Los Altos, and Nature Gallery, 296 State Street in Los Altos. Donations also may be made at weekly Rotary Club meetings each Thursday at Noon at the Garden House in Shoup Park, 400 University in Los Altos.
