Nonprofit to collect used computers, electronic gear
New2u Computers, a nonprofit program of Disability Resources in Sparks, will conduct a computer drive on Jan. 6 at Best Buy stores in Reno, Sparks and Carson City.
The event will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to collect computers, laptops, monitors, printers, cell phones, books, software and other computer related equipment, whether it works or not. Donations are tax-deductible, and Best Buy will provide discount coupons to donors. New2u Computers refurbishes the equipment and gets it back into the community.
For more information, call 329-1126.
“I think, ultimately, it was a great awareness for these restaurants and it kind of gave them a little boost for the week,” says Cheree Boteler, event organizer.
