This August, Techworks partenered with the Child Center of New York (CCNY) to help assist with their annual backpack drive. Every donation made ensured that a K-12 student in their program would receive a supply-filled backpack for the upcoming school year. We were able to raise over $1200 and support 40 kids with brand new backpacks and supplies!
Techworks Gives Back has dedicated itself to our Tech4Good initiative this year, working together with nonprofits to give them technology they typically would go without. Recently, with the donation of decommissioned technology from Sachem Public Library, we were able to donate 5 complete workstations to a school in need, P.S. 272 Curtis Estabrook in Brooklyn, NY. When we received the technology, our team volunteered their time and worked together to review all the equipment to make sure it was able to be restored to working order. Our techs then destroyed all data, and refurbished workstations to make sure it performs brand new. It was our pleasure to hand deliver them to PS 272 this past Friday. Do you know a nonprofit in need or is your office looking to donate technology? Find out more information here: https://bit.ly/3v9Qukf
This holiday season, Techworks Gives Back participated in Sachem Public Library and the Town of Brookhaven's INTERFACE's Holiday Toy Drive in order to collect and donate toys to those children in need. During Techworks' Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in November, we collected donations from our friends and families in attendance, along with members of our staff through the season. At Sachem Public Library's Holiday Market, Techwork's Executive Vice President, Thomas Lohr (pictured) along with Marketing Coordinator, Susie Henaghan (pictured), donated the collected toys to Neely McCahey(pictured), Director of the Sachem Public Library.
Techworks Gives Back, our community and outreach initiative, donated 8 refurbished desktop computers, monitors, keyboards and mouse to the Family Service League of Long Island which were distributed to students for virtual learning.
COVID-19 has presented significant challenges. Many families do not have the resources to access virtual learning platforms. The Techworks Consulting team wanted to do their part to lend a helping hand.
As part of Techworks Consulting's ongoing commitment to giving back to the Long Island community and their Techworks Gives Back program, they organized a donation drive to support Long Island Against Domestic Violence (LIADV) and their communities. Once these devices were collected, the Techworks team put their skills to work to ensure each device was operating successfully and ready for use.
With the help of donations from clients and friends of the firm, the Techworks team was able to collect numerous pieces of technology. Their dedicated and driven staff volunteered their own time, often staying late after work to ensure each piece of donated technology was throughouly reviewed, repaired and refurbished. Once ready, they worked with LIADV to arrange a safe pickup.
LIADV had this to say, "Thank you to the Techworks staff and the many donors who contributed to providing laptops, kindles and smartphones to our clients.”
The Techworks team is grateful for the opportunity to give back and are looking forward to their next chance to make a difference in their community.
About Techworks Gives Back
Altruism is at the heart of our Core Values, which is why we created Techworks Gives Back. We’ve made it an ongoing initiative to collect used computer equipment (laptops, iPads, cell phones, etc.) and refurbish them for donation purposes. We work with organizations that provide services and support to Long Island Communities providing them the resources needed for distant learning, communication and a means to work remotely. The Techworks Gives Back Task Force is made up of staff members to help facilitate, document, repurpose and oversee this initiative.
As part of our ongoing community involvement initiative, Techworks Gives Back, we will be participating in the Voorheesvile Family Bicycle Day!
It's a bicycle block party! Voorheesville Family Bicycle Day is a fun-filled day for the whole family focused on safe bicycle riding in our community. Food, live music, bmx demonstrations, bicycle safety course, fire trucks, and vendors. All on a closed bicycle course!
