About Tech for Troops
Tech for Troops is dedicated to empowering veterans with computers, skills, and Information Technology work force training . T4T will support the transitioning veterans in need and their families by providing free refurbished computers, Information Technology education and training while reducing electronic waste. So far this year, they have given away almost 650 computers and served thousands of active duty veterans throughout the USA. They have shipped 100 laptops to Houston for flood relief and 50 to Florida for hurricane relief. Their e-waste recycling efforts have seen a dramatic rise in the weight of equipment kept out of the landfill - 107 tons in three years.
What is Project Local?
Project Local was formed to support a wide variety of small, locally operated charitable organizations through fundraising and event proceeds. The Project Local Board of Directors wanted to support many different organizations that were based in our immediate community that could not afford fund-raising, event participation or advertising.
Small, locally-based charitable organizations can apply for grants through the Project Local website (www.project-local.org) and receive grants up to $5,000, free presence at Richmond, VA area events, spotlight in our web and mass media advertising, plus printing, design and advertising support to spread their message.
