Thank you everyone from the list below for donating flash drives. This blog section is a bit repetitive, thanking everyone for putting in some effort to recycle USB flash drives for a good cause, but it’s important to do so – Thank You! There was a nice blog post about what we do here, the article explains some additional options for what you might want to do with spare flash drives. The article is worth a read, if you have time – find it over @ Suite101.
Here is the list from the past six weeks for those who’ve donated:
- G Shirali – Leawood, KS
- J Ho – Kent, WA
- Unknown – Vail, CO [we included “unknowns” as proof the drives where received]
- N Eby – St. Louse, MO
- A Damron – Kerns, UT
- N Davis – Brownstown, MI
- Student Television Network – San Diego, CA
A little extra shout-out to Student Television Network as they drove up to Orange County and dropped off close to 2,000 flash drives. We are in the process on sanitizing all the drives (erase the data, format the device, insure they work) before passing them along to SugarLabs.org.
Thank you for those who donated flash drives the last couple of months. Per our routine, the donated drives will be sanatized with some techy erase function so if any data was on the drive, it will be 100% removed.
