Turbana to donate laptops for kids

Coral Gables, Fla.-based Turbana Corp. has continued its partnership with the One Laptop Per Child Foundation.

The program will provide XO laptops to children in the company’s banana and plantain growing regions. After a successful donation of 800 laptops in 2010, this year the company plans to donate 1,000 laptops to the rural areas of Uraba, Columbia.

XO laptops are durable and designed to work in remote areas.

“Instrumental in this effort is our longstanding social foundation Fundauniban, which trains teachers and educates children and their families on how to interact with and optimize new technologies, bringing communities inspiration and growth,” said director of marketing Marion Tabard.

Turbana has also partnered with Sendik’s Food Markets for their 7 Days 7 Ways to Save program, which features a daily item offered at a significant discount.

“Turbana bananas and Fyffes pineapples will be displayed on Wednesdays for nine weeks,” Tabard said.
