computer clip artWe are seeking donations of old computers that are no longer used, working or not. We are accepting “flat” screen monitors but please, none of the older CRT type monitors. Where possible, we will completely refurbish, update and upgrade them and then sell them in the Thrift Store. On special occasions, they may be donated where a need exists. Those too old to be practically refurbished will be scavenged for usable parts to be used to refurbish others.

Proceeds from the sales of items in our Thrift Shop are used to fund our food bank, our financial assistance and community programs, and to cover our operating expenses.
