SLPowers in the Community


Charitable Organizations

We don’t just want to make a profit. We want to make a difference.

At SLPowers, we are committed to making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and do business.   For more than 30 years, we have been passionately involved in serving our local area through donations to charitable organizations, sponsoring charity events, fundraising efforts, volunteering time, or encouraging employees to volunteer with days of service. 

Some highlights of the programs and organizations SLPowers supports are:

 

Community Friends, Inc

Community Friends, Inc is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping those most in need in our local community.  Their mission is to bring joy, comfort, care and security to as many people as possible by collecting necessities such as food, clothing, apparel, toiletries, gifts, toys and books for indigent, needy and or/sick children, abused women and children, the physically, emotionally and or mentally challenged and the elderly in the Palm Beach County community.  

 

Margarita Ball

The Margarita Ball of the Palm Beaches is a charity event SLPowers hosts each year.  The official kick-off to the holiday season brings together employees, clients and friends to have some fun and do some good for our community. Admission to the event is two unwrapped toys to be donated to Community Friends, Inc. who then distributes them to children right here in Palm Beach County, who may otherwise not be receiving any gifts during the holidays.  Each year, we are proud to say we collect over 400 toys to help brighten the days of many children in need.

 

Memory for Memory

Founded in 2012, the mission of Memory for Memory is to increase the funding, education and awareness of Alzheimer's disease. With over 12 years in electronics recycling experience, and a family that has been directly impacted by dementia and Alzheimer's, the founders decided to make a difference. By assisting consumers, schools and corporations with the problem of unwanted and unused electronics, Memory for Memory is able to achieve its mission of helping to preserve the memory of others through donations to Alzheimer's research. 

SLPowers partners with Memory for Memory by procuring any unwanted or unused electronics from our clients, and all profits generated from the recycling and resale process are utilized to fund the continued research, support and cure of Alzheimer’s and related dementia.
