Blandin Foundation Grant Provides 300 Grants to Austin, MN, Families

Our Minnesota team distributed fifty desktops at Riverland Community College in Austin, MN, on October 13th in partnership with Austin Aspires, an organization working to improve educational outcomes for all students in the area. This distribution was part of a grant from the Blandin Foundation to provide 300 computers to six rural Minnesota communities as part of the Blandin Broadband program in rural Minnesota. Each computer is a newly refurbished desktop secured through our e-recycling services. Many recipients were low-income Austin families who will now have increased access to and engagement with their schoolwork and community resources.
