TDI Connect – formerly the Trenton Digital Initiative (TDI) – is an all-volunteer organization that is part of United Way of Greater Mercer County, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation (www.uwgmc.org).

TDI Connect refurbishes computers donated by organizations and distributes them in collaboration with greater Trenton school and community initiatives.

We work in conjunction with the Comcast Internet Essentials program so that qualifying people can gain high-speed Internet access for only $9.95 a month.

At TDI Connect, we think everyone deserves access to today's learning and opportunities available through the internet. We have distributed over 800 computers, and are seeking computers and monetary donations to expand our mission.

We are looking for volunteers to help refurbish a large shipment of PCs

We have recently received a shipment of 700 desktops and laptops donated by Mercer County Community College and need volunteer help to prepare the PCs for distribution. We need help in the following areas:

  • Carrying out detailed inventory of each of the 25 palettes of donated machines and equipment.
  • Installing hard drives into laptops and desktops.
  • Installing the Ubuntu operating system and other open source software - a fully documented, step-by-step, process.
  • Preparing the machines for actual delivery (putting together machines, cables, monitors, keyboards, mice, etc.)

We have volunteer sessions at our location (Mill One, Suite A110, 1 North Johnston Ave, Hamilton, NJ) from 9:30am to 3pm on Saturdays – June 1, 8, 15, 22, 29; July 6, 13, 20, 27 – as well as some times during the working week.

Minimal computer experience required – we can train you!

Please let us know if you can help by contacting Denise Daniels at: denise.daniels@uwgmc.org or volunteer@tdiconnect.org
