Tell us about your community building activities in 2020?

We sponsor local non-profit events and fundraisers for organizations annually. In 2020 in response to a requirement created by the pandemic we launched the We Care Computers Students In Need Program. We enlisted our customers, friends, family and coordinated with community agencies to help provide computers to local students to enable them to participate in school activities remotely.

What community building goals did you accomplish or milestones did you hit in 2020?

We enlisted others to participate, collaborated with community agencies and were successful in distributing over $50,000 worth of computers to students throughout CT.
