Memory for Memory donates computers to Connect to Greatness, Inc.
Alzheimer’s and youth empowerment nonprofits join forces to empower African-American boys with technology.
On Saturday, January 19, 2019, Memory for Memory donated ten computers to Connect to Greatness, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides mentoring, social responsibility, leadership, and other programming options to African-American/Black middle school boys through their Boys to Men Leadership Academy in South Palm Beach County. The recipients of the computers will use them to do homework, research online, and further their education. Memory for Memory has been honored to be a staple in the South Florida community for the past five years and give back to the community while also funding Alzheimer’s research and education.
Memory for Memory’s fight against Alzheimer’s is more important than ever. Alzheimer’s and related dementias are the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States, killing more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. Memory for Memory recycles and resells end-of-life electronics, and donates proceeds from the recycling process to support the 5.7 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s today.
Chris Schoeller, Founder and CEO of Memory for Memory, said of the event Saturday: “We’re excited to be able to give back to our community in such a meaningful way. These are the first of many computers we plan to donate in 2019, so we can support our community while spreading awareness and education of Alzheimer’s.”
