Donate Computers

Donated computers and accessories make our Earn-a-Computer program possible. We strive to ensure kids can leave our programs with computers they will be able to use both for learning and fun.

We are currently taking any and all computer electronics. CRT monitors have a fee of $15.00.

Donations can be made on Tuesday and Thursday’s from noon to 9PM or on Saturday from 10AM to 2PM at Bworks, 2414 Menard Street, 63104.
