Morgan Stanley distributes 817 refurbished computers in Hungary
The Budapest office of Morgan Stanley refurbished and donated 817 computers to Hungarian educational institutions, children’s hospitals and aid organizations with the help of almost 100 employees performing 400 hours of volunteer work, according to an announcement released today.
The 36 organizations receiving the donations include Bátor Tábor, Heim Pál Children’s Hospital, Gézengúz Foundation and Ferencvárosi Komplex Nursery School and Elementary School. Educational institutions were given 502 computers, children’s hospitals received 150, while aid organizations were given 165 computers.
“The practice of a corporation donating computers is not a novelty, however, the practice of corporate employees doing so in the framework of social work volunteering is indeed a novelty,” Norbert Fogarasi, Managing Director at Morgan Stanley’s Budapest office, said. The leader added that as data security is very important to the company, the computers have been reformatted and cleared of all data as per stringent security regulations.
