Throughout April, Eastside Baby Corner and Friendly Earth are collecting usable laptops that will be refurbished and donated to local children.
Friendly Earth, which has a mission to keep electronics out of the landfill, will refurbish as many of the laptops as possible and recycle the rest. Eastside Baby Corner will work with its provider partners to give the refurbished laptops to local school children in need.
The goal for the Laptops for Little Ones Drive is to collect 100 used laptops.
Laptops will be accepted in any condition by both organizations. Find Eastside Baby Corner collection times and locations online. For Friendly Earth drop-off times, please email Andrew Shute.
If you're interested in collecting laptops at your place of business, email Christine White.
Also welcome are donations of software to install on the laptops before they are donated to children.
