Laptops being collected in honor of Mulcahy

The family of Bud Mulcahy is collecting used laptops in the Roaring Fork Valley and in Texas to donate to a school in the Rift Valley in Kenya.

Mulcahy, a part-time Basalt resident, was the founder of Africa Water Wells, that constructed a well which brought clean water to the village of Kapasembe. A school there was named in honor of Mulcahy.

Mulcahy died earlier this year in May.

Mulcahy’s wife, Sandra, and his son Lee of Aspen are collecting the laptops. They said in a statement that laptops sent by mail or carrier often do not reach their intended destinations in East Africa.

Therefore, the laptops they collect will be delivered to the school by a team in October 2016.

Laptops can be dropped off at Christ Episcopal’s church office or by calling Lee Mulcahy at 817-371-0529 for pickup.

People who want to donate but don’t have laptops can contribute cash for clean water or educational efforts through
