Cranbrook Computer Donation Program
The Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Kootenay Computers, launched a program in 2016 to help bridge the digital divide for families in the community who are unable to obtain a home computer. The program is now a tripartite arrangement. The Chamber works with the business community, collecting old computers, tablets, smartphones, monitors and peripherals. Kootenay Computer refurbishes the computers and has committed to refurbishing a minimum of 50 per year. The Salvation Army is the connection to the community, ensuring that the equipment goes to where it will be most beneficial.
“We believe all residents of Cranbrook have the right to equal opportunities and we are doing what we can to lessen the ‘Digital Divide.’ This initiative will bring access to computer technology to over 50 households in Cranbrook per year. A donated computer will certainly have a direct, positive impact on the quality of someone’s life.”
There is a considerable need for donation equipment, especially flat-screen monitors, keyboards and mice.
The program accepts all computers, tablets, smartphones, monitors and peripherals. If you’d like to make a donation, please drop off your equipment at the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce anytime between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. If you would like more information about the program, contact the Chamber at 250-426-5914 or [email protected].
Businesses wishing to donate equipment can schedule a pickup by contacting Kootenay Computer at 250-919-8959 or [email protected].
If you are a resident or community organization and would like to receive a refurbished computer through this program, please contact Nancy at the Salvation Army at 250-426-3612.
Thank you for your donation!
