Ridgefield resident Christopher Lanzarone was able to replace his stolen laptop last week thanks to the generous help of Redding resident John Sand. 

When Sand heard about Lanzarone’s brand-new MacBook Air was stolen from Ridgefield High School earlier in the year, he offered to cover the cost of a new laptop computer as well as a full license to Office 2016 for Mac.

"It’s just part of our commitment to give back to our local communities," said Sand, owner of Connecticut Computer Associates and a member of the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department.
