Computers For A Cause
8:00 AM - 7:00 PM
First International Bank & Trust 1600 S Broadway, Minot, ND 58701
ND E-Waste, along with KX News, McDonald's, and First International Bank are excited to announce Computers For A Cause, a fundraising event to benefit the Souris Valley United Way's Backpack Buddies Program!
The Souris Valley United Way’s Backpack Buddies program is currently in six local Minot schools, filling backpacks with food and feeding on average 218 children a weekend. It costs $10 to feed one child for an entire weekend through this program. This program runs strictly off of donations and is hoping to expand to more schools in the area.
We want to give back to the community and help fill these backpacks! On May 1st, ND E-Waste is having a computer recycling event that will be open to the public and businesses. For every computer that is received, we will donate $5 to the Backpack Buddies Program. (All hard drive info will be destroyed)
HOW CAN YOU HELP? Bring any computer that needs to be recycled and drop it by on the event date. It's a win win! $5 will be donated and you will help recycle these electronics properly and keep them out of the landfill!
WHEN: Wednesday, May 1st: 8am-7pm
WHERE: First International Bank & Trust
1600 S Broadway St, Minot
ACCEPTED ITEMS: Computers, Laptops, Flat screen monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, printer.
NEW!! Hard Drive Shredding: Watch as we shred your hard drive at a discounted rate of $5/per drive.
