The GRID will bring refurbished laptops and desktop systems for purchase. Goodwill created the GRID technology store to provide Charlotte with a central outlet for used technology such as computers, game consoles, software, Raspberry Pi hardware and more. Payment options are limited to VISA, MasterCard and cash. Laptops will be sold between $130 to $200 and Workstations will be sold between $80 to $200. There will be a 30-day option for exchange or repair at The GRID’s discretion. If a return is in order, The GRID will provide credit at The GRID/Goodwill – no cash back. After the warranty, The GRID will offer a lifetime of analysis of any hardware problem at no cost, with modest prices for repairs. The GRID will also bring Raspberry Pi hardware to sell. (Everything sold on site carries the GRID’s exceptional warranty.)
Love INC, a national non-profit that is committed to transforming lives and communities provides refurbished laptops. In other words, If you are an individual with economic challenges Love, Inc. will sit down with you to confirm your availability to receive a refurbished laptop. There may be a $35 fee to cover the software on the laptop but that is the only charge. Love, Inc. will have a table where they will discuss requirements one on one
Love INC has formed a network with more than 190 congregations in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area. Many of those churches have completed a “Time and Talent Survey” of their congregations to determine which volunteer services their members are willing to offer to people in need. When a need referral is made to the Love INC office, it is then assigned to a Love INC volunteer who is willing to do that service through one of the Love INC network churches.
