Event Description:
Please join us on Monday, July 22 at 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. at the Richmond Memorial Health Foundation offices (in the Libbie Mill Midtown development at 4901 Libbie Mill E Blvd, Suite 210).

These two sessions in Richmond will provide an opportunity to learn more about bringing the country’s leading computer refurbisher to the Richmond and Hampton Roads markets, also called the I-64 Innovation Corridor.
Four in 10 people in poverty do not have a computer and many don’t know how to operate one. Upward mobility often comes from digital access and competency.
PCs for People is a national computer refurbisher with an impressive community support model that’s been at work for over a decade in 10 large U.S. metro areas. It refurbishes outdated computers donated by companies for underserved residents, provides computer skills training and on-call technical support, and helps wire multi-family homes with free or low-cost internet service. PCs for People impact makes a real and immediate difference. Hundreds of thousands of underserved households served by this nonprofit see a 15% jump in their household incomes in the first year they have a PCs for People computer.
We need PCs for People in both the Richmond region and Hampton Roads market. Together we meet their expansion requirements – to be 3 million people with a trade area of 120 miles. PCs for People is now expanding into a few new large U.S. markets. We want them to do so here in our megaregion.
We had an incredibly successful kickoff meeting on May 30 to attract PCs for People to the Richmond region to Hampton Roads. There was a lot of enthusiasm – one participant remarked that bringing PCs for People to the megaregion was “a no brainer.” The PCs for People CEO was equally impressed by the excitement.
