On Friday, November 4, 2016 human-I-T worked with The Wonderful Company again at the OurCycle LA program. OurCycle LA focuses on donating technology and promoting digital literacy with computer training. The program provides participants with new technical skills, on-the-job training and provides career placement opportunities.Programs like OurCycle LA have been largely successful because they reduce the amount of e-waste heading into landfills by diverting it to low-income families, veterans and other schools-in-need; closing the digital divide.
Last year, The Wonderful Company helped refurbish over 200 computers, bag over 400 peripheral bags for re-distribution. Shortly after, The Wonderful Company became a recurring technology donor and has had several old electronic assets donated directly to the OurCycle LA program.
In 2016, during their 2nd annual service day, their IT Department helped process over 1,000 broken, e-waste computers that will now be recycled instead of ending up in a landfill. Other members of their service day team tested 195 monitors and cleared thousands of square feet in the shared City of Los Angeles warehouse by sorting through boxes of random electronics
With the help philanthropic organizations like The Wonderful Company, human-I-T is able to continue making an even larger, positive impact every year.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to 2017!
