How You Can Help

We rely on donations of computers from various sources. We welcome donations from individuals, corporations, small businesses, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, and government agencies.

We welcome any donation of PC, printer, computer peripheral, or office equipment. Donations can be made at our headquarters in Rhode Island, or at any one of our upcoming Green Events. Tax receipts are provided upon request to donors for possible tax deductions.

We have a supply of electronics that can be purchased through our eBay site.  Items include:

·       Internet ready Refurbished Systems

·       Parts & Peripherals for the hobbyist & collectors

·       Hard-to-find components


Budget Friendly

In the expanding world of information technology, you don’t want to be left out. Goodwill offers computers to those who may not otherwise have access to current technologies. We offer a wide range of products from laptops, towers or complete systems to fit any budget.

HOW We Do It

Donated computer equipment is tested or disassemble, and parts salvaged. Working equipment is refurbished/rebuilt into computers for sale, as well as computer peripherals. The non-salvageable equipment is sold to recyclers.
