Send us your unused Computers

For our organization to build and ship out computers, we need the machines first! We get some donations from corporate sponsors or other places, but every individual donation counts. At this time we are seeing fewer donations than normal. We are looking for new corporate donors, as well as all individuals that have the opportunity to do so. We want to be able to help all those who request a computer from us! If you have a computer, or know of others that have computers that can be used to help others, please get them to us! Please mention us all over the place, such as at your job, doctor's offices, clients, friends, etc. The more people who know about us, the more likely we are to get more computers!

What we Need

We can use both laptops and desktops. Not all systems are able to run our accessibility software. We do have some requirements for the systems we get. They are listed below:

  • Processor Speed: Dual Core @ 2GHz or higher (Only multi-core systems)
  • Memory: Each system must ship with at least 4GB, we can make up the difference if necessary
  • Hard Drive: At least 120GB. (We securely wipe every hard drive we receive)
  • Laptops: It's best if you can bring the power adapter as well.

We also can take other peripherals:

  • External DVD Drives
  • Speakers
  • Graphics Cards
  • USB Keyboards
  • USB Mice
  • Flat Screen Monitors
  • All Computer cords (USB, Power, and Video)

We can't use some older technology like CRT Monitors, but when in doubt, donate! What we don't use is sent on to others who can use it. We also have volunteers that check non-working equipment to see if we can revive it, so even if it doesn't turn on, we might be able to use it.

Corporate Donations

We offer free pickup from businesses who have bulk donations. We can schedule a time to bring a truck to get all of the equipment being donated and haul it away. Depending on the quantity of items, this service may be available across the US. Tax deduction receipts are available if required. Please fill out this form to start the pickup process.

For any immediate questions, please contact David Jeppson, Executive Director: 214-293-8819

Individual Donors

The following are donation sites located the DFW area of Texas. If it is convenient for you, you may drop off your parts at any of these sites. If possible, we encourage donors to bring items to our Refurbishing Center in Richardson. Please call David Jeppson at 214-293-8819 if you are unable to drop off your computer at one of these locations, or if you live outside the DFW area.

We can email you a tax-deduction receipt for your donation. Please attach your name and email address to each piece of equipment you send.
