Our Programs

Helping Mother Earth


C4PiN is committed to the planet and its people. We accept donations of used computers, peripherals and other e-waste that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Donated computers meeting our specifications are refurbished for reuse. All e-waste donations that cannot be refurbished are broken down and responsibly disposed of through our recycling program.

We accept the following items:

  • Computers (Desktop, Laptop, All-in-One)
  • Printers
  • Flatscreen TVs
  • Cables
  • Phones
  • Audio Equipment
  • Office Equipment

Closing the Digtial Divide

 Refurbished computers are distributed to local low-income students, families, individuals and the non-profit agencies that serve them. Last year we distributed approximately 200 computers to our community , and we are ramping up to have an even greater year with the help of our institutional partners and you. We work with our community offering either computers at a low-cost or computers in exchange for volunteer hours.   

Computers are  diagnosed, cleaned, , repaired and imaged with a genuine copy of Microsoft Windows 10 Professional. The result is reliable products for our clients. In fact, we warranty our refurbished computers for 1 year.

 This year we also added an educational component that offers one-on-one technology tutoring at a low cost and we partnered with local schools to offer technical internships to college  students.  In addition, the E-Waste Manager, Robert Gavel offers on-the job training and evaluations for hardware tear-down and rebuilding of computers to interested volunteers and students.
