IBM giving back

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC-DT) -- IBM teamed up with Ability Building Center to give back to the community Wednesday afternoon to celebrate 100 years of existence. 

Every Wednesday, people with low incomes or disabilities can buy a refurbished computer for 50 dollars.  Wednesday, for the celebration, the computers were 25 dollars. This was made possible from a large donation from IBM to help offset the cost. IBM employees volunteered their time to share their expertise to help workers with disabilities refurbish the computers.

Steve Kann of IBM says, "IBM is about providing service and we want to be a part of the communities and give back to the communities and so this is why this event was scheduled this way is to get all IBMers energized for this one big day to go out and provide service and provide our talents to the community,"says Steve Kann of IBM.

It wasn't just IBM in Rochester that was giving back, every site worldwide participated in these community events.
