Tech Drive Tuesday in the Northland

Updated: August 06, 2020 04:42 PM

Tech Drive Tuesday was a success in the Northland. It's an effort between Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union, Minnesota Computers for Schools, and KARE-11.


The second Tuesday of the effort was August 4th, and there were collection events at Affinity Plus in Duluth and Grand Rapids. People brought in old laptops and keyboards and other devices. They do not have to work. Some will get refurbished and fixed, and be as good as new.

Amanda Bruggman, the branch manager in Duluth, said, "People are excited we are proactively helping kids be successful this year, especially amongst all the changes. We're really excited to be able to contribute to that."

Affinity Plus is also matching up to $25,000 in monetary donations, which you can make through August.
