One of our biggest highlights for July absolutely must be the 1000 LCD we received from the Saanich School District. Their huge donation is going towards supporting the Connecting Families initiative. Their donation could not have come at a better time either as we quickly race to dwindle our current supply of monitors. All our computer peripherals are being sent out quickly so its amazing to receive such a large donation like that!
We shared an SFU article on our social media that talked about the combined efforts of SFU, TELUS, and other Burnaby community members to get vulnerable communities online during COVID-19. We are proud to support TELUS as their computer refurbisher for the Internet for Good initiative as part of their larger campaign of Mobility for Good.

We’re continuing our work to provide computers as a response to COVID-19 and we still have requests coming in. Our technicians are working hard but we continue to be desperate need of donations. If you have any tech you can donate, we need to replenish our stock to continue helping BC students and families.

Also, we want to thank all the individuals and organizations who have donated to us throughout the pandemic. Our top donators in July were organizations like TELUS and Alpine Building Maintenance. With these donations, we managed to refurbish and send out over 600 computers and laptops in July to schools, non-profits, libraries, and Indigenous communities. Our refurbished tech has gone to helping some wonderful non-profit organizations this month such as MOSAIC, Hastings Community Association, and the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre Society
