Do you have a gently used but working computer at home to donate? We need personal laptops, desktop computers, and monitors!

Why donate money?

 

Monetary donations are a huge help for Computer Smiles. There are some expenses involved in refurbishing almost every computer. We try our best to reuse parts from other computers whenever possible; however, sometimes we do need to purchase needed parts. The internal clock battery (cmos) needs to be replaced in every computer we rebuild. Additionally, many computers are donated to us without monitors. Below is a list of various other parts that we sometimes need to buy to make the computers functional in the long run. We want our computers to be trouble free and last many years. A small investment in a part now insures a longer computer life.
