Clean out that back room. Make room for holiday gifts. Make someone’s life a little easier. Donate a digital device. KSNI reports…
The United Way of Central Minnesota will host a donation event this weekend to help families get the digital devices they need to stay connected during the pandemic.
The device drive will happen Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Quinlivan & Hughes parking lot. Donors can place donatable items in their vehicle’s trunk, drive to the donation site, and pop the trunk. Volunteers will unload the items.
Some acceptable donations include cell phones and tablets restored to factory settings, laptops, computer towers and monitors, keyboards, mice and servers. Appliances that don’t connect to the internet like copy machines and TVs will not be accepted.
Director of volunteer engagement Mary Krippner said this device drive is a first for the local United Way.
