Last week, Triangle Ecycling had the opportunity to forge an exciting new partnership! We were contacted by Donna Rewalt, the Durham County Extension Director, and were asked to donate computers to 4-H campers. We prepared ten laptops with Windows 10 for the campers to take home at the end of the Coding 101 camp this Monday.
We also sat down with Donna and Darnell Parker, the County Extension Agent for Agriculture, to learn more about what they do in our community. The County Extension is doing some excellent work through their informational workshops on health and nutrition, parenting, and more. We also discussed how the Triangle Ecycling workshop series could benefit the County Extension audience.
Thank you to Donna Rewalt and Darnell Parker for making this donation happen. All of us at Triangle Ecycling are looking forward to continuing to work with the Durham County Extension. Stay tuned to learn more about our work with all of our partners here in Durham!
Triangle Ecycling is a nonprofit with the mission of making Durham (our home town) smarter, cleaner and more equitable. We do this by supporting education. We have a semester long computer tech internship for Durham Public High School juniors and seniors that teaches tech, teamwork and the soft skills of working in a real business that gives back to its community. We’ve had more than 100 interns come through the program. We also donate 10% of our profits to the DPS Foundation to support innovation and equity in the public schools. Finally we teach digital literacy and Internet safety through our nonprofit partners. We make Durham and our environment cleaner by recycling over 70 tons of e-waste a year – keeping much of it out of the landfill. We are your Durham electronic recycling/ecycling option. We enhance equity by donating computers, tech support and education to any Durham nonprofit that educates kids and offer discount computers to help bridge the digital divide at our local Triangle VIP Store.
