Yesterday we shared a thank you to those corporate donors and local partners that helped us have a great 2022 supporting our mission in and around Montclair. Certainly, distributions to local students like the one today of 26 laptops (above) from us via Succeed2gether would not be possible without such partners. Laptop Santa is VERY happy!
However, that is only part of the story. Our ability to deliver laptops like the photo above, or to achieve any of the other successes we realized this year would not be possible with out the hard work and focus of our lab volunteers led by Mike Brown. Mike and his team supported by Mark Zbucki, our technical lead, hold two sessions each week where High School volunteers do the work that often goes unnoticed in our lab.
Student volunteers check in, test, securely wipe any data on donated laptops, install operating systems, test (again), and clean each laptop that comes in to our doors. All of this is done under the the auspices of Mike. There are many small steps along the way in preparing laptops to be upcycled. Each one is important and each volunteer plays a part in our success.
So, here's Part 2 -
To Mike and his team of 100% volunteers, we thank you. Without your commitment to our cause we would not be able to make the positive difference we do in and around our community.
Happy Holidays All!
