Neighbors Empowering Youth’s technology community reinvestment programs have given NASA/JPL, Lockheed Martin, Leidos, Parsons, ManTech and aerospace companies a responsible option for disposing of end-of-life and surplus computing equipment.

By Chris Sulzbach

For 22 years, technology donated by Neighbors Empowering Youth has provided much-needed resources for the programs of local nonprofit organizations for youth, seniors, and the underserved. For the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our nonprofit and our programs. But we’re still here helping communities in the San Gabriel Valley, and we need your donations to stay active in our mission to bridge the digital divide. “We believe that a child without a computer is like a school without pencils.”

All responsible companies are faced with the task of safely disposing of older equipment and their electronic waste.

Computer donation program

Neighbors Empowering Youth has a computer donation program that extends the life of computer equipment and reduces waste.

Hard drives are erased using Department of Defense DoD 5220.22-M or, if necessary, hard drives are physically destroyed. We’ll do whatever it takes to keep your business data out of the wrong hands.
