Working with Anakbayan Silicon Valley (ABSV), a youth and student organization that advocates for the rights and welfare of Filipino youth, GreenMouse, Inc. will provide an ABSV designated drop-off area for collecting electronic waste at 529 Race Street, San Jose. Money generated from the recycling of the electronic waste will be donated to ABSV. Monetary donations can also be made at this event.
“With the help of NAFCON, who works with on-the-ground organizations to make sure relief and aid go directly to where it’s needed – the urban poor and rural areas that already have weak infrastructures – we can contribute to the relief efforts. This is an important fundraiser for ABSV members. We have friends and family in the Philippines who need our help,” said Amelia Vergel de Dios, ABSV Event Organizer.
