Local Trucking Company Donates 10 Computers to Kick-Off the Effort
MePush’s community-based computer donation project, MeGive, is again pledging to give away computers to local families in need. MePush has a goal of collecting 50 computers by mid-December, which will give them time to ready PCs for local kids.
MePush is currently collecting computer laptops, monitors, and towers. Community members are encouraged to drop off their computer equipment at the Lewisburg Office at 1210 Market Street. Monetary donations are also accepted to assist in this effort. 100 percent of monetary donations will go towards purchasing equipment to fill any gaps.
Families who would like to request a computer for their child for the holidays should register online with MeGive’s partner, the Central PA Chamber of Commerce, who manages donations for the project. The website is http://centralpachamber.com/megive-apply-now/
Requests will be honored in the order they are received.
MeGive’s goal is to give away 50 computers on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 1 p.m. at the Central PA Chamber of Commerce in Milton.
Conor Quinlan, CEO of MePush Inc. says of the effort, “We’ve been giving gently used computers to local kids for more than seven years. Our goal is to impact the lives of 50 local kids this holiday season, but we need the community’s support. A number of local companies have already stepped up, but we need more help. Any and all donations are appreciated and will go right back into the local community.”
Chad Mensch, General Manager of Watsontown Trucking Company says of their contribution to the effort, “We were planning to upgrade all of our XP machines to Windows 7 and refurbishing them for local kids was a no brainer. Watsontown Trucking is a local company employing local drivers so we didn’t hesitate to donate ten machines to the MeGive project that MePush created.”
