Bridge Technical Talent recently raised $1,174 for The Providence Center School’s Learning through Technology Project, which incorporates technology into student curriculum. The company, a full-service IT staffing firm, raised the donation through its sixth e-Waste Recycling Drive.

The money raised came from donations of more than five tons of discarded electronic devices such as cell-phones, computers and TVs during the event. A portion of the money also came from sales of shredding services provided by Affordable Shredding Inc., a mobile shredding truck.

“We are proud to partner with The Providence Center School and be able to help put technology in the hands of their students,” said Joe Devine, partner at Bridge Technical Institute.

Bridge has a history of donating funds to the school’s technology initiatives. In February 2011, company partners Joe Devine and James Wright donated $5,000 to help the school purchase its first iPads for student learning. According to the company’s blog, staff members also partnered with the school’s leadership and other representatives in July 2012 to help students paint a mural with an anti-bullying theme.

The Providence Center School is a special-education school serving pre-K to grade 12 students from all over Rhode Island who are coping with mental-health issues. •
