Temple Chai and Temple Kol Ami are both now official collection centers for PCs for Refugees (PFR), a local nonprofit that refurbishes old computers and gives them to refugees in the Valley.

Riad Sbai, the founder and president of PFR, said his parents moved to the U.S. from Syria in the late ’80s. Over the last few years, he watched the growing conflict in Syria with a mix of sadness and frustration. He wanted to do something to help but didn’t know what. Then he learned that refugees from the conflict were being relocated to Arizona.
