Thank you, Susan and Highfill Infrastructure Engineering, PC, for your generous gift. We're so grateful for your support!2020 has brought many changes, and one of the biggest things we've depended on through it all is technology! We're grateful for the people who work hard every day to develop, innovate, and teach others how to make the most of the digital landscape.

The Kramden Institute has been fulfilling their mission in 3 ways: collecting, refurbishing, and awarding computers to students and families without a computer in their home; inspiring students to succeed by teaching them critical computer, software, and internet skills; and recycling and reusing donated computers and parts.

Susan Sperbeck, based in our Cary office, nominated them for Giving Tuesday this year. She shares, "I’ve been working with them since 2016. I started teaching/assisting in the classroom. Plus, I volunteer in the warehouse refurbishing computers. The most fun is the recycling area where you get to dismantle the computers for their parts!!"

Thank you for all you do to keep the community plugged in and online!
