Computers for the Blind

Opening Worlds - One Computer at a Time


How We Get Computers


It all starts with COMPUTER DONATIONS - desktop computers, laptops, and monitors. We need it all. Corporations and individuals are solicited to give us their us their no longer needed computers. A group of volunteers refurbishes older, but still useful computers. The hard drive is erased for security purposes, the hardware is rebuilt, and software for the blind is loaded.

We are seeking Pentium 4 - 2 GHz computers.
The minimum configuration needed is:

  • Dual Core - 2 GHz Processor

  • 2 GB of RAM

  • 80 GB Hard Drive

If in doubt, donate. When a computer cannot be refurbished, it is used for spare parts.

Individuals and corporations can receive a tax deduction and maximize recycling options with their donations to CFTB.

Drop-off Sites are located throughout the DFW Area for individual computer donations. Corporations can arrange to have their no longer needed computers picked up by CFTB by calling 214-340-6328.

Technology opens the window to the information age and our mission is dependent upon your donations of no longer needed computers.
