The Capital Area Corporate Recycling Council is a
501 (c ) 3
(tax id # 721315510) in Baton Rouge, La. Our web
site is www.cacrc.com which
describes our normal operations. Since the hurricanes we are trying to
fill the needs of displaced non-profits and families with computers.
Our goal is to refurbish and distribute 1000 computers by early
Here is our original request for computers:
The Capital Area Corporate Recycling Council
(CACRC) is a non-profit electronic recycler/refurbisher currently
helping in the Hurricane relief effort. The demand is ever growing for
computers. Displaced non-profits from New Orleans and the southern
parishes are in need of computers for start-up. Shelters from Louisiana
and Mississippi are asking for computers and there will be a long term
need for displaced families to have computers in their new homes. The
FEMA trailer parks will need to have technology available as well.
The CACRC would like to be able to provide at
a minimum 200 computers to non-profits, 300 to 500 to shelters around
the region (we had a request for 100 today), and another 500 for
displaced families. We have ~ 100 computers on hand.
We can use Pentium II and up with working monitors.
Our warehouse can upload and download pallets of equipment. The CACRC
can provide a letter of donation to any donor requiring one.
Thanks for your assistance in this. Help down this
way is deeply appreciated. We are in this for the long haul.
