    FROM THE Summer 2018 ISSUE
     

The Organization: PCs for People is headquartered in Minneapolis and recently opened a Denver office. The nonprofit organization refurbishes and recycles computer equipment from businesses, individuals and government agencies and provides them at little or no cost to families that could not afford them otherwise. PCs for People provides the same services for significantly reduced prices for eligible nonprofit organizations. pcsforpeople.org

The How: PCs for People offers electronic recycling for end-of-life IT assets at no cost to the donating individual or entity. The computers are wiped clean, repaired if necessary and donated, with the average family served having an annual household income of $16,000. If PCs for People can't reuse the donated equipment, the organization works with certified recyclers such as Techno Rescue and Blue Star Recyclers.

The Process: Picking up the equipment is free when there are more than 15 computers being donated at a time or set up a drop-off appointment by emailing denver@pcsforpeople.org

It was a treat to experience the new Meow Wolf Denver during a media preview event without all the crowds and to meet various artists and staff who made this third permanent exhibition from the U.S.-based arts and entertainment company a reality. Convergence Station opened to the public for quantum travel on Sept. 17, 2021 and held its first concert the following day.  

 

The fanfare surrounding completion of the Sheraton Denver Downtown’s $80 million, full-scale renovation may have been delayed due to COVID-19, but the VIP/media ribbon cutting and community unveiling event on Sept. 16 was done in true style. The porte-cochere and lobby were taken over for the event that featured live music, a sampling of local food and drink, and the chance to savor a cocktail in Bezel Denver, a swank new bar that hasn’t opened to the public quite yet.   

 

Recipient of the World’s Leading Luxury Train title from the 2020 World Travel Awards, Rocky Mountaineer launched its first-ever excursion in America’s Southwest on Aug. 15, 2021. Rockies to the Red Rocks is a two-day route that winds alongside rivers and through canyons and mountains between the vibrant city of Denver, Colorado and the red rock formations of Moab, Utah.
