The Trenton Digital Initiative (TDI) is a partnership between Mercer Street Friends, Trenton Rotary, Mercer County Chamber of Commerce, Comcast and other interested people to distribute free computers and low-cost, high-speed Internet to economically challenged Trenton families.
The Trenton Digital Initiative (TDI) removes obstacles that prevent low-income families from accessing the “digital highway.” Kids and families in poor communities rarely have a reliable home computer or can afford a reliable home internet connection. The TDI program closes these gaps by soliciting and repairing used computers; distributing and setting up the refurbished units in the homes of low-income families, teaching the families how to use their computer effectively, and connecting them to the internet through a special service plan offered by Comcast called “Internet Essentials” that provides internet access for only $9.95 a month to those families in need.
TDI is administered by the MidJersey Center for Economic Development. For information on how to donate computers, volunteer to refurbish equipment and help deliver and set-up units, contact Jeff Richardson at 609-689-9960.
