TRENTON — Thursday afternoon, Mayor Reed Gusciora along with City Council Vice President Crystal Feliciano and North Ward Councilwoman Jennifer Williams presented a check for $100,000 to TDI Connect through American Rescue Plan funding. TDI is an all-volunteer organization that is part of the United Way of Greater Mercer County non-profit corporation.
Also in attendance were Ray Ingram of TDI Connect, Trenton Public School Superintendent James Earle, and CEO of United Way of Greater Mercer County Sandra Toussaint-Burgher.
TDI Connect is a local nonprofit that accepts, refurbishes, and donates personal computers to in-need groups and individuals in the Trenton area. In 2020 alone, the nonprofit gave away over 1,250 refurbished PCs to Trenton public school students and residents.
“TDI Connect greatly assisted the Trenton community at the height of the greatest health crisis of our time,” said Mayor Reed Gusciora in a statement. “It is not only warranted, but essential that we use ARP funds to give back to an organization that helped our residents secure the equipment that quickly became a necessity to pandemic life.”
“We are grateful for this wonderful support from the City Council. This funding will help us recoup pandemic expenses and continue to provide PC equipment to Trenton residents and to introduce a training program to help the community become self-sufficient,” Ingram said.
