Willmar, Minn., nonprofit to give away computers to low-income families


WILLMAR — KandiComp of Willmar doesn’t plan to get rich working with PCs for People, a nonprofit that provides free refurbished computers to low-income families.

While the company is a for-profit business, its partnership with the nonprofit PCs for People is an important aspect of their effort, said Roy Stiff, KandiComp owner and a former United Methodist pastor.

When he and his wife Beth started KandiComp nine years ago, he knew he didn’t want to be just a business man.
