Our TechRefresh program breathes new life into recycling computers and other technologies. In partnership with Cascade Asset Management and area businesses, we collect, ‘refresh’ and donate the equipment non-profit groups, schools, libraries and a variety of local groups who are also focusing on addressing the digital access gap.
How the program works
- Cascade wipes the equipment clean in order to prepare it for new life.
- We distribute the equipment, free of charge, to non-profit groups across our service area.
This year, as part of our TechRefresh program, we have donated nearly 100 computers to agencies across Wisconsin and Iowa, including:
- City of Dubuque
- Jewels Academy
- Cedar Rapids Public Library
- Hazel Green library
- Hazel Green first responders
- Hollandale Lending Library
- Village of Hollandale
- Menominee Tribal Community/ College of Menominee Nation
- Rock County Jump Start (Center for Community Stewardship)
- Root to Rise
- Southwestern Wisconsin Community Action Program, Inc. (SWCAP)
- Woodland Boys and Girls Club
