Green Bank Hosts Third Annual Used Computer Drive, Benefitting Techs & Trainers

Starting on December 27, 2010, Green Bank partnered with local non-profit Techs & Trainers to rescue older computers from the attic and provide refurbished machines to Houstonians in need.  For two weeks, ending January 7, 2011, the drive took in donations of desktops, laptops, monitors, printers and other accessories at three different locations throughout Houston.

On December 30, Barbara Rosen, executive director of Techs & Trainers, was able to stop by the Greenbriar location to check in on progress.  She was joined by a very special guest! (See below for more.)
