"The Boys & Girls Club is doing important, impactful work to empower young people within our local communities, and we are pleased to support them by providing additional resources," said Michael Plaksin, VP, Growth at Newegg. "Limited access to technology can often become a barrier to success, which is why we are committed to providing the organization with the latest technology to further their mission of helping young people. As a tech-focused e-retailer, we see the increased demand for technology products, and we understand the importance of helping people in the community who are struggling to bridge the digital divide. Therefore we continue to seek creative ways to support them, especially children, by making the latest technology more accessible to them."
In celebration of "Giving Tuesday," Newegg donated approximately $10,000 worth of state-of-the-art computers, tech accessories and gifts to the Boys & Girls Club. In addition to the donation, the company has committed to providing additional technology equipment to the organization at steeply discounted prices.
"We are grateful for the donation of technology provided by Newegg. In order to provide programs to more than 2,000 children annually, we rely on the generosity of businesses that support our mission in serving youth," said Mark Chavez, Executive Director of Boys & Girls Clubs of La Habra.
The donation announced today is part of a larger collaboration between Newegg and the Boys & Girls Club. The partnership began in mid-2021 when Newegg teamed with its supplier partners to donate much-needed personal protective equipment (PPE), which has since been used to protect the health of Boys & Girls Club personnel, as well as the children who spend time in their facility.
Newegg’s collaboration with the Boys & Girls Club is an extension of the company’s commitment to support local youth organizations, which in the past has included supporting local schools and providing other financial support to local youth-oriented organizations.
