Goodwill Industries of Greater Cleveland, in partnership with CCBDD, operates their Computers Again program at CCBDD’s Beachwood AAC. (This program replaces CCBDD’s CHIP program, which had been in operation until late 2014.)
Computers Again aims to provide affordable computers to low-income families and individuals as well as non-profit organizations by collecting and refurbishing unwanted computers that would otherwise be destroyed.
- This program is a great way to help get computers in the homes of families and individuals who would otherwise not be able to afford it, while also keeping electronics out of the landfill.
- Children without computers in the home today are at a great disadvantage to those who do. So much of modern education depends on students being able to access a computer during non-school hours.
- Having a computer is a prerequisite to connecting to the internet, and anyone who lacks access to these tools is at a great disadvantage in today's world.
By making technology affordable, we can help many people acquire the education and tools needed to gain marketable skills in computer technology.
All hard drives of donated computers are wiped, and if they cannot be wiped, the drive is destroyed. The ideal donation is a Pentium 4 CPU running at 1Ghz or better.
Goodwill accepts donated computers at all its retail and attended donation center locations. Additionally, you can donate a computer at Goodwill's Computers Again Beachwood Office: 23750 Mercantile Road, Beachwood, Ohio 44122.
