“This is part of our commitment to bettering our communities and societies. We are taking the laptops some deem as no longer fit for use and giving them to the people who need them and will appreciate them,” said Serdar Bankaci, President of CyberCrunch.
In this present day technological age, thousands of people still have no access to computers or the internet, making them disconnected from the rest of the world. Therefore, the laptops for seniors and students initiative will provide Westmoreland County residents a chance to rejoin the society and move out of obscurities.
As part of their e-waste recycling business, CyberCrunch promotes reuse of refurbished laptops and electronic equipment. CyberCrunch partnered with United Way to find local recipients who may benefit from a refurbished laptop, including seniors on fixed incomes and early education centers with limited budgets.
Increased technology use can benefit both seniors and young students. Seniors can combat isolation and loneliness by making connections through social media and other online communication. Seniors can also access helpful services like transportation, grocery delivery and health tracking with ease. In the early education classroom, computers, laptops, and tablets can provide students with customized, highly interactive learning experiences. Teachers can also use tools to plan lessons, assess student progress and continue their professional development.
With these laptops, seniors and students who receive them will have the opportunity to socialize with families, relatives on social media and develop new interests and improve their learning experience respectively.
