OAK RIDGE, Tenn.—The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) donated three excess computers to Community Mediation Services of Anderson County this week. Community Mediation Services (CMS) reduces court involvement and promotes the peaceful resolution of community conflicts using community facilities, resources and volunteers.

"As a small non-profit organization we very much appreciate the donation of the newer computers from ORISE," said Mary McCarthy, program coordinator for CMS.

The program’s office staff and 40 volunteer mediators will use the computers to coordinate its mediation programs, manage statistics for its guarantors and to communicate with other mediators and mediation centers across the state.
