Community Computers Regina

Because not everyone has access to a computer.

We make it easy to recycle your used computers for FREE!

Since 2006 we have been providing free computers to local families on a referral basis. How do we do it? By taking your old ones through our free computer recycling program.

What we accept for recycling or donated computers and equipment.

We accept usuable computer equipment for our computer donation program. This includes desktops, laptops, monitors and other IT equipment manufactured within the past 3-5 years.

We provide free computer recyling pickup to Regina and surronding area.

Have usable computers that need recycling? Our computer recycling service is perfect for both business and enterprise (certificates of data destruction available).

A LITTLE ABOUT COMMUNITY COMPUTERS REGINA


Our mandate is to provide computers to in need. We do this by accepting used computers, fixing them up and donating them back out to families in need in Regina. Computers are donated by referral only - this means we do not take requests directly from people needing a computer.

Referrals can be made by someone, who in their official capacity at another non profit group or service agency, is aware of the potential recipients situation (ie, can attest to the need). Referrals are made in writing and on official letter head.

HELP US, HELP OTHERS

HOW IT ALL STARTED





Robert Jozsa

Founder, Community Computers Regina

How it all started

Community Computers Regina began with a simple act of generosity in 2006.

Back in 2006 Robert Jozsa (Founder of Community Computers Regina) was selling used computers for a non profit he worked for. There he met a young family looking to buy their first computer. On deciding what to buy the mother turned to her two kids and asked them if this is what they wanted. She said "Now you understand that if I buy this we can't get you shoes for school." Moved by the choice this family had to make, Robert gave the computer to the family, free of charge.

A computer for school, to do homework or look for work, or buy shoes for the kids. Not a choice any parent should have to make, certainly not a choice a kid should have to make. However it is a choice families in Regina are forced to make every day. We often take for granted many of the things that make living in a digital age possible.

Since 2006 the technology has shifted from desktop computers, to laptops, to tablets and smarts phones and need for access to technology has grown. Today there are many families throughout Regina without regular access to basic computer technology.

We at Community Computers Regina are here to help change that.
