A new laptop computer and monitor donated by GE Energy
Software donated by Microsoft
A printer, office supplies, and a gift certificate for a computer desk and chair given by the house sponsors.
One of the new sponsors on the build this year, Look Listen, contributed a top of the line Char-Broil grill to the homeowner.
And to help the project’s completion:

The Coca-Cola Company again provided beverages throughout the project.
MDI Group donated funds to secure a Pod on the home build site to store supplies.

We are moved by the support that’s powered the completion of 12 TechBridge Technology Community Habitat Houses for 12 hardworking families in metro Atlanta. This continuous generosity and encouragement from the technology leaders of our city for the improvement of our community is beyond inspiring. —James Franklin, CEO, TechBridge
