Instead of letting unused tech go to waste, universities and colleges are invited to partner with SocialBox.Biz for outreach program
LONDON, UK APRIL 3, 2020 – While many universities, colleges and Schools routinely replace their tech, including laptops and other devices, the team at SocialBox.Biz is reaching out to engage educational institutions across the United Kingdom regarding the Laptops for the Homeless and Elderly initiative.
Unused but functional technology can be repurposed and donated to refugees, homeless and the elderly through the SocialBox.Biz donation program that has already touched the lives of many by offering new and exciting opportunities for careers, education, and communication.
University of Westminster already published this appeal on their website, twitter and LinkedIn page on 31 March 2020
“We are always looking for more educational institutions to help us increase the number of laptops we’re putting in the hands of those in need,” said Gio Valdez, Social Impact Projects Leader at SocialBox.Biz.
Staying connected in this crisis is not easy. H is relying on a a laptop provided by @SocialBoxBiz to access our services and continue his college studies. Thank you @SocialBoxBiz and those who are able to provide technology at this crucial time.

Spokesperson from RSN said: ”Refugee Support Network are incredibly grateful to Social Box for supporting the young people we work with. As we transition our services online, laptops from Social Box are crucial to maintaining that connection and face-to-face help we provide to refugees. Without being able to get online, many vulnerable individuals would be left completely alone and unable to access important information.”
If you’ve ever considered donating a laptop for the Laptops for the Homeless and Vulnerable Initiative, then now is the time. We have young people in need who want to continue their education and get on their feet, and we know that with your help, we can help them. If you’d like to donate, please connect with us today!
