Bradenton PC Repair and Last 7 Studios continue to partner with the Veterans of America Hospital at Bay Pines to provide laptops and portable devices to our wounded veterans returning to the area. The goal is to help wounded vets keep in touch with family and friends while they are recuperating or even help them prepare to join the workforce when they are ready.
This is our second year of doing this donation drive and we would like to thank everyone who donated during our first year of the drive. We were able to help 26 families with the computers that were donated. We want to thank everyone who donated during the past year, and all of the veterans and families want to say thank you for your generosity.
We are fast approaching the holiday season and many households will be getting new laptops, IPads, tablets, kindles and other electronics for Christmas. Typically the old electronics end up in a drawer for years or worse in a landfill somewhere and benefit no one. In most cases these devices can be cleaned up and or upgraded to benefit someone else.
On 11-11-2014 and continuing throughout the year, Bradenton PC Repair will be collecting old devices and refurbishing them for use by our vets. All donated devices will be cleared of all old data (to ensure safety and privacy for the previous owner) and then be given directly to returning wounded veterans. The donated items do not even need to be in working condition to be of use. Most non-working items can be fixed and still donated to our vets.
There will be a kick off on 11-11-2014 at Bradenton PC Repair located at 6703 14th Street West in Bradenton but the endeavor will be an ongoing one for years to come so even if you are not able to make it to the kick off celebration, donations will be welcome at any time. Those who donate on Veterans Day 11-11-2014 will receive a coupon for 1 Free Pc Repair (Excluding Parts) from BPCR.
