Looking for ways to giveback to the community?

Community Resource Hub


Businesses and Corporations, we are asking for your help in closing the Chicago Southland Region’s digital equity gap. As you may know, many people in our region do not have access to the technology they need to succeed in today’s economy. This lack of access can have a devastating impact on people’s ability to find jobs, learn new skills, and connect with their communities.

That is why we are asking you to pledge to donate your organization’s retired computers, iPhones, and Androids to our organization. These devices will be refurbished and distributed to people in need, helping them to bridge the digital divide and reach their full potential.

We know that you are committed to making a difference in our community, and we believe that this is an opportunity to do just that. By donating your devices, you can help us to close the digital equity gap and create a more equitable future for all.
Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
