Giving thanks to 107 new recycling clients who made ’22 our most productive year yet

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and here at give IT. get IT., we are especially grateful this year. In addition to celebrating our 20th anniversary, we’re on pace to help over 1,000 people in need for the first time ever. From single moms, senior citizens, and college students to aspiring social workers, military veterans, and recovering addicts, putting computers into the hands of people who need them isn’t just our mission, it’s our life’s work.

“It’s incredible,” co-founder and Operations Director Chris Martin says. “We started this organization with a handful of volunteers and $61,000 we cobbled together from our personal savings and a few local supporters. Today, we have 15 employees, 8 dedicated volunteers, and a $1.5 million annual operating budget. We’ve come a long way, and I’ve never been more excited about the future.”

We are hitting these extraordinary milestones thanks to our 150 current electronics recycling clients like Bangor Savings Bank (also our longest-tenured client), IDEXX, Maine General Savings, SAPPI, and Systems Engineering, and over 100 new electronics recycling clients who partnered with us for the first time this year. In this post, we will honor ALL of our new clients alongside behind-the-scenes photos of our team picking up and processing their surplus technology. We’ll also share some eye-popping statistics, plus a few photos of our “got IT” clients — who are the driving force behind everything we do.

Thank you, 2022 electronic recycling clients!
