Tampa-based eSmart Recycling and Atlas Professional Services have teamed up to donate computer equipment and IT setup services to Friends of Joshua House Foundation Inc., a nonprofit that promotes growth, stability and support to children in the foster care system.
The donation includes 10 fully refurbished laptops and five desktop computer workstations, which will provide kids who are receiving support from Joshua House with access to computers for study and homework.
eSmart Recycling is providing the refurbished computer equipment, while Atlas Professional Services, a leading Tampa Bay IT support services provider, will donate resources to set up the computers and workstations. The partnership aims to provide a sustainable solution to bridge the device gap and provide basic technology infrastructure to kids in the Tampa Bay area who do not have access to computers.
“Giving back to our community is core to who we are as a company,” said Greg Zolkos, CEO of Atlas Professional Services. “We’re proud to work with eSmart Recycling on this project supporting our client Joshua House and to help give kids the technology they need to learn and grow.”
Joshua House provides resources to improve the quality of life for abused, abandoned and neglected children and teens in the Tampa Bay community by promoting healing, growth and empowerment. The organization creates an enriching family-like environment where children in foster care with complex traumas can heal, recover and stabilize so that placement permanency can be provided.
“It is an honor to join forces with Atlas and their team to support a wonderful organization such as Friends of Joshua House,” said Tony Selvaggio, founder and CEO of eSmart Recycling. “We believe in their mission and the importance of technology as a foundation for sustainable education.”
eSmart Recycling’s mission is to recycle old technology from the best companies in the world, at the highest compliance standards, and use a portion of the proceeds to fund tech labs for kids without access to computers worldwide.
