Recently we received a call from Casey Sorenson who was in search of some used pallet racks for
their new facility in Saint Paul, MN. Casey works for PCs for People a nonprofit organization that gives refurbished computers to low-income families located in the Twin Cities and Southern Minnesota. Not only does PC’s for People offer low-income families computers but they also offer training at their facility to other individuals looking to begin a career of their own in fixing computers. They take donated computers 8 years old or newer, clean them up, and install them with Windows XP. At times they have had waiting lists of up to 1000 people long in need of their computers. As Casey was explaining PC’s for People he also shared that they are a nonprofit organization and had a very little budget to buy the shelving he was searching for. Casey also asked if a donation was an option and we told him that if he was flexible we would love to help. So we looked around our inventory and found a used rack system that was perfect for their needs. It would total 13 upright frames and 50 cross beams offering them close to 100′ of pallet rack shelving with 2 to 3 levels per section. The shelving will be used to store computer monitors and also to hold their misc parts.
