Techies Give Back with Tech Nav

“Techies Gives Back” is a program created and run by Tech Nav to collect working computers for families in Knoxville who can’t afford them.

Donations will be distributed by the Knoxville CAC to families who have have faced homelessness or near homelessness. Specifically, donations will be given to families with school aged children to help complete school work, help parents find jobs and ultimately to enable these families to connect to the world.

All donations will be given to families right here in the Knoxville area, helping those in our own neighborhoods first.
