 What We Do

Who We Are

  • Help bridge the digital divide by providing FREE computer systems to schools and nonprofit organizations that cannot afford to buy new equipment.

  • Wipe the hard drives clean of all information and programs using Department of Defense conforming software.

  • Evaluate nonworking equipment using specialized diagnostic equipment and software.

  • Restore the computers to good working condition.

  • Rebuild printers, scanners and other peripherals and provide them as fully installed system components to clients as requested.

  • Donate the refurbished computer systems to schools and nonprofit organizations.
