Oakland, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2008
Boys & Girls Clubs of Oakland (BGCO) is proud to announce that Hewlett-Packard donated a brand-new, state-of-art Color Laser printer to BGCO. Through HPs Global Social Investment organization, Boys & Girls Clubs of America was selected to receive a total of 105 HP Color LaserJet 9500hdn printers (estimated value of $8,000/each). BGCA, in turn, identified 105 Club organizations that had the capacity and need for such a high-production printer. This printer will allow our Club to print high-quality materials that we would have otherwise had to pay an outside service to produce. This will result in a great cost savings to our organization. BGCO would like to thank HP for their support of our Club and its mission in serving youth.
Additionally, Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and Hewlett-Packard Company recently launched a first-of-its-kind national digital video service program that allows families to access and purchase age-appropriate digital content in a safe and secure online environment. The BGCA videostore is now live and can be accessed by visiting http://www.bgcavideostore.com. Later this year, BGCA Videocards will be available for purchase in Circuit City stores. BGCA will receive a portion of the proceeds from all purchases made both online and from video gift cards sold at Circuit City stores.
