ComputeReach is a technology outreach mission primarily serving the communities of Pittsburgh, PA. We have also reached beyond our own neighborhoods into regions across the USA, such as the hurricane-torn Gulf states of Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.
We also reach out internationally to places such as Malaysia, Africa, El Salvador and Nicaragua where second-hand computers are highly sought and appreciated. Please see our stories and check back often as more missions are completed.
Volunteers from the Pittsburgh area gather every week to fix hundreds of donated computers. Computers that still work are refurbished and immediately put into communities throughout Western PA. The computers that do not work are recycled responsibly to eliminate e-Waste.
ComputeReach relies on a dedicated and increasing group of volunteers from schools, churches, businesses and community groups to help us embark on strategic missions throughout our local communities every week. The volunteers separate the parts from de-manufactured computers, most often glass, metal and plastic, which are then sent to recyclers. We use a database-driven web site that can immediately print a comprehensive record about volunteers and how many hours they’ve worked. This is a useful tool for keeping track of community service or teacher-required volunteer hours.
