We have recycled computers to give to families who have a member that has a disability. These computers that have been donated to us by businesses and families for the purpose of this program. These computers are recycled and made available to you upon request. We have both PC and a minimum of Macintosh platforms. Families are asked to donate $20.00 when picking up their computer.
This program could not be possible without the help of our many volunteers. These computers are checked by our volunteer technicians to make sure they are in excellent working condition and cleaned of all viruses.
