To RTPnet TACT list and Triangle InterNetWorkers, with copy to Jim Shamp:
Here are a couple of quotes:
You can donate your used, but useful, computer gear to TEAMing for
TECHnology, a computer recycling program operated from the Morrisville
headquarters of Triangle United Way since 1996.
The process helped keep more than $500,000 worth of useful computer gear
in use in 2003 alone, helping about 200 families and 179 agencies,
according to Bowers-Roghelia.
There's decription of programs that use the computers, ending with:
And donating unused computers for refurbishing and redistribution by
TEAMing for TECHnology can help make those literacy, GED and job skills
classes possible, noted Bowers-Roghelia.
