The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock is stepping up to help students who need electronic equipment for classes by holding an electronic charity drive Saturday, Sept. 19.
The charity drive will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Lot 8, next to the Donaghey College of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
ACM members will be accepting electronic equipment in any condition, and are encouraging people to donate items even if they believe they have no value. The ACM may be able to use them for parts to repair other items. Monetary donations will also be accepted.
All proceeds will be donated to area students. Any equipment that cannot be repaired or used for parts will be recycled.
Equipment will be available first to UA Little Rock students. If the resources outpace the demand, then the Association of Computing Machinery will reach out to other universities and schools that could use the equipment.
