1E is excited to have partnered with the good folks of Urban Renewal Corp to donate some of our older laptops and other technology items that we are no longer using. Urban Renewal Corp is a 501 c-3 non-profit located in New York City. With their motto being “Recycle-Renew-Reinvest”, Urban Renewal Corp has many services they offer to the community, from Workforce Development, Education & Life Skills, and even Emergency Housing. 1E is working with Urban Renewal Corp within their Workforce Development sector. Urban Renewal Corp works with the community to teach life skills such as computer programming, repairing, and building. The items we are donating to Urban Renewal Corp will be used for these programs to help strengthen the community.
We decided to work with Urban Renewal Corp for this exact purpose. They are taking items, whether working or not, and having collected them, if they are able to be used for education and life skills classes they will use them for that purpose. If not, Urban Renewal Corp also operates a recycling center that will responsibly dispose of the parts and items that cannot be reused.
Our first donation was of 15 laptops, two printers, and three monitors, all of which can be put to good use instead of gathering dust on our shelves! 1E plans to continue donating what it can to this great cause moving forwards.
We at 1E take tremendous pride in our community activity. We have a mission to give as much back to the world as we take from it, and it makes us happy that with our technology, we are able to give back in a full circle.
