London, the UK, March 5, 2020: London-based community interest venture and tech hub SocialBox.Biz is thrilled to announce that they are moving closer to their 1000th laptop handover, thereby demonstrating the power of private sector businesses giving back.
SocialBox.Biz is working with AVIVA, Sumitomo Corporation Europe, Legal & General, Young & Co.’s Brewery P.L.C., BP, Virgin, Regus, and others to secure unneeded but still usable laptops to place into the hands of the homeless, elderly, and refugee community via accommodation services, SocialBox.Biz is giving the disadvantaged a chance to reconnect with family and apply for jobs.
Additionally, SocialBox.Biz will be collaborating with Centrepoint, The Passage, AGE UK London and other accommodation services to ensure all handed over laptops have access to power and internet for those using them.
“It’s nearly impossible to function without access to the internet today, which is what impedes the homeless from getting back on their feet,” said Peter Paduh, Founder of SocialBox.Biz. “We couldn’t accept that, which is why we’re branching the divide between businesses and government programs, helping the people that often slip through the cracks.”
SocialBox.Biz will hit their 1000th laptop handover milestone during spring 2020, a goal they have been pursuing for years.
SocialBox.Biz aims to highlight that something as unneeded as an old laptop at any business firm could be the difference between homelessness and a future for someone else, and they hope every business will consider giving back in 2020.
