“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.
Until May 31st, Tech Nav and our community partners will be collecting the following list of items for families without a computer in the home:
Jump (or Flash) Drives
USB Wi-Fi Adapters
Basic Computer Speaker sets/systems
*Please note: We are looking for technology that is in working condition. Software issues such as slowness is not an issue. But broken hardware is not able to be used.
