PHILADELPHIA, PA — Digitunity announced the donation of 700 laptop devices from Unisys, a global IT solutions company headquartered in Blue Bell, Pa., to the PHLDonateTech initiative. This City of Philadelphia initiative calls on residents and businesses to donate devices—particularly laptops and computers—so they can be refurbished and distributed to residents in need across Philadelphia.

“Responsibility to our communities is a guiding principle at Unisys and using technology to benefit them is a core element of our commitment,” said Wendy Reynolds-Dobbs, chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer, Unisys. “We are honored to partner with Digitunity and the City of Philadelphia to make these devices available to local organizations working to improve people’s lives by boosting digital equity.”

Digitunity works in a national coordination role for an extensive network of over 1500 digital inclusion organizations, including local nonprofit refurbisher Electric Access Foundation and Drexel University’s ExCITe Center, all collectively working toward long-term systemic change and impact in the pursuit of digital inclusion and equity for all.
