Computer Donations

Donations are essential to maintain our refurbished computer inventory. We thoroughly wipe all hard drives on donated computers to ensure data privacy and security. We accept donations by appointment. To schedule an appointment, reach out to Todd Howard at 630.384.1360 or thoward@peoplesrc.org.

Donation receipts are available upon request. Donations that cannot be refurbished or reused will be recycled through a certified R2 recycling partner.
