- Elizabethtown College donated 30 used computers to the Ukraine Protection and Development Fund (UPDF), a nonprofit that aids Ukrainians affected by the Russian attack on eastern Ukraine. The computers will be used for Andrew Kinsel’s Adopt-a-School program that provides assistance to affected schools.
- The computers were collected and cleaned by Brian Helm, the Senior Director of IT at the college, before being shipped to Ukraine. David Sloan and Don Schroder, both retirees from Rodale Publishing, transported the computers to New Jersey.
- The donation from Elizabethtown College is one of many initiatives supporting Ukrainians affected by the conflict and is a heartwarming example of how individuals and organizations can come together to support those in need.
In a significant stride towards sustainable development, Ukraine has received used tech equipment from Elizabethtown College. The community-driven initiative was aimed at providing much-needed technology support to underprivileged communities in Ukraine, and to reduce electronic waste in the U.S. The used tech equipment included computers, monitors, printers, and other devices that were no longer needed by the college.
The equipment was shipped to Ukraine last week, thanks to the efforts of local volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure that the equipment was packed and shipped safely. The shipment was received by representatives of several Ukrainian NGOs and community groups, who expressed immense gratitude for the much-needed resources.
The used tech equipment is set to help bridge the digital divide in Ukraine, which has struggled with outdated technology infrastructure for several years. The donation is also expected to promote education and improve access to essential services, such as healthcare and social support.
This collaboration between Elizabethtown College and Ukraine is a positive example of how communities can work together towards a common goal – sustainable development. It highlights the importance of repurposing used technology to reduce e-waste and promote environmental stewardship.
Overall, it is heartening to see communities come together and take positive steps towards creating a sustainable future. This initiative is a beacon of hope for the future of technology and sustainable development.
