Our Program

Computers are an essential requirement for many students and workers.  Our technology team is working hard to keep up with the demand for refurbished laptops.

Our program has provided over 600 computers to registered families.

Many of our volunteers are local high school students interested in IT, but anyone with IT knowledge or computer repair skills is welcome to help.

Volunteers also support Share’s internal IT operations and social media platforms.

Donate a 
Computer

The Share Technology Program needs laptops with current Windows 10 or 11 software for our neighbors in need.  We don’t accept any laptop which is older than 5 years and any printers.  

 

Please click here for a list of Acceptable IT Donations

 

We understand concerns about sensitive personal data on donated computers.  All donated equipment is kept in a locked room under video surveillance. Computers are never booted up upon donation, but are re-formatted so that no previous information remains. If a hard drive cannot be used, it is destroyed so that no recoverable data remains.

 

Please bring laptop donations to Share during our normal food pantry hours. 

Company Donations:

Please email us at technology@shareofmclean.org to discuss what your company has to donate.  Our volunteers will arrange delivery or possible pick up.

Request a
Computer

The Share Technology Program distributes laptops with current Windows 10 or 11 software to our neighbors in need who receive service from any of Share’s programs on a regular basis (MacBooks may be distributed upon special request). Each Share neighbor is eligible for one computer, however exceptions are possible for families based on certain circumstances. 

Please stop by the Food Pantry on any regular opening and speak with

a volunteer to request a laptop.
