During the event, Ancero collected more than 55 computers and pieces of computer-related equipment donations in addition to $1,000 from the more than 180 attendees.
“Because everyone deserves Internet access” is the credo of TDI, a non-profit program that works to help economically challenged Trenton families cross the digital divide. The organization estimates there are 10,000 families in Trenton that don’t own a computer. TDI reconditions, repurposes and then distributes donated computers to these families for free.

“Computers are an essential everyday tool and many of us take for granted our access to them. Ancero has developed a fun and creative way to engage the business community, while raising awareness for an organization that seeks to provide these tools,” said Jeffrey Barnhart, CEO and president of CMA. “CMA is excited to be a part of raising awareness for this organization and participating in this event.”
TDI was started in Trenton in 2011 in partnership with
Mercer Street Friends, which services underprivileged populations in the Trenton area.
“The need is so great that not doing something is inexcusable,” says Paul Boyer, managing partner of Ancero, a Mount Laurel-based communications solution provider. “As a technology vendor we have a unique perspective and the valuable resources to help expand TDI’s mission to a new audience. With this opportunity, we hope our contributions will help children in Trenton grow socially, academically and find a sense of belonging.”
