COVID-19 Increases the Need for IT Equipment

until the COVID-19 crisis is over
Over the past three weeks, Alberta Computers for Schools (CFS) has seen a marked increase in applications to the program with requests for free refurbished computer and laptop equipment. The technology is needed to support a variety of low-income families, non-profit organizations and schools as they re-tool for people to work and learn from home.

By reinvesting your surplus IT equipment through our program your organization can play a major role in increasing the number of computers we provide to Alberta schools, libraries, and other learning-based organizations. Please send us your good surplus computers (i series, CPU's), laser printers and multi-media components. Please do not strip the equipment of vital operating components. Our refurbishing centres will use approved disk-wipe software to ensure all information is removed from hard drives. Our procedures are quick and simple, and all contributions will be acknowledged.

Desirable Items
Desktops - Intel i series & AMD FX 4000+ complete systems with RAM, HDD, etc.
Laptops - Intel i series & AMD A4+ complete with WiFi Adapter, A/C adapter, RAM, HDD, etc.
Hard Drive - Minimum 160Gb Sata 1/2/3
Displays - 20" widescreen LCD/LED displays manufactured 2012 or later
