Jun 05 2020

It's a new week of #BandofHeroes, where we love to celebrate positive news from our partners in response to the on-going Coronavirus Pandemic. This week's hero is always coming up with creative ways to support both families and businesses when it comes to technology - and nothing is more important in our current world than access to the technology that connects us. Read on to know more about the series of initiatives that HP has come up with to help fight COVID-19.

Donating $8 Million in products and grants to support blended learning and local communities impacted by COVID-19 worldwide

The HP Foundation has donated $1 million to support affected communities with critical medical supplies, and is committing an additional $2 million in grants for COVID-19 relief. HP has also committed to distribute $5 million in product donations including laptops, printers, displays, and paper, to help Education, SMB and Healthcare entities in communities in need around the world. Additionally, HP is also partner up with the Global Business Coalition for Education to provide equipment to students impacted with schools closures with Comp-U-Dopt in Houston, Chicago and Dallas, and distributing new Chromebooks for Safe Horizon’s shelters, which support children living in domestic violence shelters in New York City.

Announcing the HP Turn to Learn program to deliver educational content to support teachers and students 

As schools remain closed due to COVID-19, parents, teachers and students have been thrust into a time of remote teaching and learning. Some students are lacking the connectivity or devices required to learn at home, the program aims to bridge this gap by delivering educational content curated from leading scientific, publishing and media companies. By converting digital content to printed booklets, all students will have equal access to materials focused on STEM ( Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and environmental topics. 

“A student’s right to education should not be contingent on where they live or their family’s income. We must find creative new ways for teachers and students to connect from a distance – because while this pandemic is creating hardship for so many around the world right now, we cannot afford to let it hold back the generation that will shape our future,” said Enrique Lores, HP President and CEO.

3D Printing Parts To Help Contain Covid-19

HP’s global network of manufacturing partners is working to ensure that the 3D printed parts are available in any region around the world. More than 1000 3D printed parts have already been delivered to local hospitals.  HP’s 3D R&D centers in Europe and North America are collaborating with partners around the world in a coordinated effort to increase production to meet the most urgent needs.  Initial applications being validated and finalized for industrial production include face masks, face shields, mask adjusters, nasal swabs, hands-free door openers, and respirator parts. 

“HP and our digital manufacturing partners are working non-stop in the battle against this unprecedented virus. We are collaborating across borders and industries to identify the parts most in need, validate the designs, and begin 3D printing them,” said Enrique Lores, President and CEO, HP Inc. “Our deepest appreciation goes to our employees, partners, customers, and members of our community for their tireless efforts to support the medical professionals making a difference on the front lines.”

These are only a few new initiatives that HP is doing to respond to communities they serve during this time. To date, HP has also given over $70,000 to local youth sports teams in North America through FlipGive.

    I agree with you, many professions have developed tremendously in this difficult time. In addition, now there are many opportunities for showing potential clients the results of your work, for example, how to add github to linkedin. This is very convenient, and I think that it is definitely worth using, so be sure to check it out.

    Many people say that the pandemic has greatly affected their work and financial condition, but for me, as a developer, there are so many new opportunities.

    This is not the first time I am reading anything about services by HP. It is always interesting to read about them, but they do not provide discount for printing. It would be really amazing if they did, people would benefit a lot.

    Covid-19 has been an absolute mess. Most Mathematics Problems used to tense me up before and now Covid-19 is doing the same. Is this the same with other people too?

    I think the local communities have suffered the most when it comes to Covid-19, really do think. This was also indeed acknowledged by Biotechnology News. I pray for such communities!

    Thank you for the interesting report, I think that on the one hand, technologies are good, less harm is done to the environment, and it is easier and more convenient to store a large amount of information in electronic form. It can also be noted that new services from specialists have appeared, for example, such as automatic consulting before people did not even know that someone would be engaged in such a business in our time. On the other hand, humanity is becoming more and more dependent on technology. Many people cannot even imagine what they will do if, for example, they forget their phone at home, this is equated to a tragedy. There is a great number of those who simply kill time on social networks, live communication is replaced by a set of letters on the computer, and gestures and facial expressions are replaced by emoticons. Yes, this is good for those who are far from each other, or for some other reason, they simply cannot physically see each other. But we abuse such benefits, because, living in the neighborhood - we communicate through the network and devices. People just stopped visiting and just seeing each other.

    It's great that there is an opportunity to support these organizations during covid. This applies to educational institutions because they also have a difficult time at this time. It's good that there is a chance to study online. I also chose this learning format for myself. I need to write personal statement and prepare all the necessary documents. So I decided to ask for help to prepare properly and get my place on the online course.

    The number one problem for many families at this moment is domestic violence. I know it's a true problem from my own family. But if you only resort to experts it is solvable. And from the outset, you must know more about it. That is why I urge that you read https://studydriver.com/domestic-violence/ about this issue in greater detail. You may read and find out more here. Good luck.
