Premier Apple partner Power Mac Center in partnership with the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation is launching its UpTrade program to provide customers an opportunity to help fellow Filipinos in need.
In turn, those who will donate old devices will get corresponding discounts on their next iPhone purchase. This initiative is part of PMC’s 26th anniversary celebration this 2020, which focuses on helping those who have been affected by the current health crisis and highlights the resilience, courage, and strength of Filipinos.
According to official figures, there are 21.7M students who enrolled for the upcoming school year and only a little over 500,000 electronic devices available to lend to teachers and public school students.
Those willing to help by participating in PMC’s UpTrade to Uplift program can donate any working MacBook or smartphone or tablet of any brand but it must have no screen damage and have properly functioning speakers and complete accessories such as chargers and charging cables. All devices donated will be given to deserving schools in need through the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation.
