Columbia Bank, Tualatin, OR
Thank you for the recent donation of 185 of 2GB flash drives! They will be put to good use. Per our website, if you donate drives and include information about your organization, we will re-post it.
For those of you who are viewing the website, please read the following:
I am part of Columbia Bank’s Professional Banking team in Portland Oregon. My department had acquired about 185 UB drives that we were no longer able to use. I did a quick internet search to see what I could do with them and was thrilled to find your website and learn about the great things you guys are doing around the world – both for youth education and the environment. One of the things I love most about Columbia Bank is how much we care about the community. Just last year, Columbia Bank put together 10,000 financial literacy kits for our local schools. The following is an excerpt from the Columbia Bank’s Engagement Philosophy:
Columbia Bank’s people are the center of our community engagement programs. Our people understand the needs of their communities and are passionate about improving them. By supporting their efforts, we amplify what they can accomplish on their own and extend our impact exponentially. We draw attention to the issues that matter to our people and act as an accelerant for the positive change they wish to create.
At Columbia Bank, we demonstrate this commitment through our comprehensive approach to community engagement, empowering employees to address the unique needs of their communities through four distinct pillars: fundraising, employee giving, volunteerism and company giving. Providing support through these employee-driven pillars allows us to have the greatest impact in the communities we serve. Because of these efforts, we are deeply woven into the fabric of our communities.
It is our pleasure to donate the enclosed USB drives to support your organization. Thank you for what you do.

An armchair guess saying that 50% of the donated USB flash drives come from corporations, we thought it appropriate to re-post an article with some valuable information for SD duplicator equipment.
Today, the optical drive is dead so many are going to flash memory for data distribution. USB is the defacto medium because every computer has a USB port, but most computers also have SD card readers.
This link is to an article that talks about different types of SD duplicators business can purchase. For business dealing with SD and microSD cards, they are looking to produce hundreds, if not thousands, of SD cards. To do this efficiently they will need a quality duplication system.
The article talks about both PC based SD duplicators and standalone duplicators, and highlights some key features between the two.
Yes, a bit off topic for this donation site, but still a good read if you deal with flash memory.
We are still accepting flash drives and proof is last week’s collection of USB sticks. See picture below along with list of those who contributed. To those who did; THANK YOU.

These drives will be wiped clean (data removed at bit level and then formatted) and sent off to Sugar Labs so they may distribute your donated flash drives to kids all over the world.
It takes a bit of extra effort to recycle USB flash drives. Here is a list of those who put in that effort the past couple of weeks. Needless to say (but we will anyway) Thank You!
