CGF launches Youth PC Charity Drive
Collection drive aims to allow the less fortunate access to personal computers
SINGAPORE – Campus Game Fest is proud to officially unveil the Do-It-Yourself Personal Computer (DIY PC) Charity Drive, as part of the Campus Game Fest 2016 programme.
This novel initiative will see volunteers actively contributing or canvassing for PC components from the general public over a period of two months, from 1 May to 26 June 2016. The collected PC components will then be aggregated during Campus Game Fest 2016, where a group of trained volunteers will assemble and test the recycled PC in an allocated event zone.
The recycled computers will be presented to a selected Youth Voluntary Welfare Organisation, benefitting under-privileged youths who will then be able to loan the PCs for their work or studies.
CGF hopes that the DIY PC Charity Drive will help raise awareness of some of the issues facing the less privileged in Singapore, and encourage volunteerism amongst the youth and gaming community.
This project also aims to encourage the environmental-friendly habit of recycling and reusing computer components.
The charity drive is projected to engage over 500 youth volunteers in the canvassing and assembly of the PC components, and further reach out to a general audience of more than 12,000 during Campus Game Fest 2016.
