Nov 18, 2013

Monday, November 18, 2013 – Trinity Partners geeked out at The Kramden Institute’s Geek-A-Thon, helping refurbish computers and tech equipment for the local non-profit organization to be presented to grateful students from the Triangle Area. The Kramden Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering hardworking yet economically disadvantaged students to cross the digital divide by providing thousands of personal computers to students to be used to advance their academic and personal achievements.

Trinity Partners’ Property Management team manages 4915 Prospectus in Durham, where The Kramden Institute recently expanded to accommodate growth. Trinity’s Construction Services completed Kramden’s space build- out, and after helping the non-profit expand, Trinity decided to get even more involved with a volunteer project._DSC5112

“After working with Kramden to upfit their expansion space, we saw first-hand how impactful their work was. Spending half a day volunteering with them allowed us to be a part of their very important mission, helping us understand just how much it takes to bridge the digital gap for disadvantaged children,” said Trinity Partners’ said David Townsend, Partner and Director of Construction Services.

Kramden’s Super Geeks guided Trinity’s staff as they rebuilt computers, from installing hard drives and other crucial equipment to create updated, working personal computers for distribution.

“As our property management and, most recently, our construction services company, Trinity Partners is especially near and dear to our hearts,” said Cari DelMariani, Kramden’s Director of Programs. “They made the new and improved Kramden a reality and we thank them for giving their time to give back to students in need.”

Mark Alviano, Trinity Partners’ Director of Investment Sales, plans to continue supporting Kramden by creating connections with Trinity’s client base. “Recently, one of our clients disposed of a large number of computers, and after learning about the Kramden Institute’s mission through our hands-on experience, I’m much better equipped to inspire and encourage property and business owners to meaningfully recycle with Kramden’s program,” Alviano said.
