To RTPnet TACT list and Triangle InterNetWorkers, with copy to Jim Shamp:

See http://www.heraldsun.com/durham/4-433913.html

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.
