Albuquerque Computer & Electronics Recycling Company owner Greg Mullen spent some time on-air with radio host TJ Trout. The radiothon broadcasted from the fun and quirky venue, Tin Can Alley. Mullen explained,
“People could bring donations to Tin Can Alley, or they could text to donate. On air, I shared some tips about cybersecurity while encouraging people to bring their food donations in or text a financial donation.”
Mullen and Trout took the opportunity to share with listeners about the increased threat of cybersecurity attacks, explaining how individuals and businesses can prevent security breaches. This work is a central focus of Albuquerque Computer & Electronics Recycling Company’s’ sister company—ABQ-IT.
From the start of the drive on November 17 through November 30 (Giving Tuesday), the community donated a total of $27,288. The community truly stepped up to work towards KKOB’s mission to “Fight Hunger in New Mexico.”
