Electronic Recycling Event Volunteers

Volunteers are needed for New Life Technology Group's Electronics Donation drive on January 29. The event will take place at multiple locations. Volunteers will be carrying electronic waste from vehicles to collection boxes or directly to trucks, and will hand donors receipts.

New Life Technology Group is a non-profit organization with a mission to help our planet by reducing e-waste and support our community through a Computers For Kids program. They do this by recycling, refurbishing, and redistributing old computers, IT equipment, and other electronic waste. They partner with schools in the area to find students without computer access and supply these kids with their very own laptops for school! They just reached 1,000 laptops donated to students in need since New Life's inception.

- Volunteers will wear masks.
- Gloves are recommended.
- High school students can volunteer without an accompanying adult. Middle school students can volunteer with an accompanying adult.
