Businesses can now donate their old tech at participating centers
Regus and SocialBox.Biz have forged a highly successful partnership that is helping homeless people get back on their feet. In celebration, a special donation day was held on August 15, 2019, and aimed to hit a milestone of 1000 laptops donated by 2020.
Local press, councilmen and councilwomen, politicians, and other community figures were welcome to come for a special donation day morning and coffee.
To date, Regus sites have received approximately 200 items including laptops, office telephones, network switches, servers, desktop computers, mobile telephones, and business attire.
“I’m glad this is up and running,” said Steve Adams, Councillor for Belsize, London Borough of Camden. “Any help that can be brought through this innovative social initiative is to be welcomed. Well done.”
The initiative to reach 1000 laptops by 2020 is on track to be a success; to date, 600 have been donated. Those who want to take part in helping reach the milestone include Regus clients, which include entrepreneurs, small businesses, consultants, and more, and the public is also invited to donate laptops, computers, old mobile devices, attire, and more. Before donating, donors are asked to remove private data from tech devices as this is a public event.
Donations are also being accepted at the SocialBox.Biz donation drop off location in the London Borough of Camden in central London ( Regus-Spaces, 77 Farrington, LB, Camden, London EC1M 3JU ).
