Computers 2 SD Kids is a growing local not-for-profit that has refurbished more than 12,000 computers and provided them to needy families all across San Diego County.

Area residents can drop of eWaste at the Viejas Outlets on Saturday, August 27 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Look for drop off and distribution signs in the parking lot of the Viejas Outlets. Volunteers will be on hand to accept all working and non-working electronic items including computers, TVs, radios, phones, cords, printers, hardware, used ink/toner cartridges and software.

C2SDK recycles and refurbishes used computers and delivers them to families in need across San Diego County. C2SDK also arranges for the families to receive training and technical support necessary to achieve success.  “We work closely with local community and social service agencies to identify families in need, and a growing number are located in East County,” said Cheri Pierre, Executive Director of C2SDK. “So this is a great opportunity for East County residents to help others in their own community and we appreciate the support from Viejas and the California Welcome Center.” C2SDK has partnered with local businesses such as Viejas and Barona Casinos, Sharp Hospital, Cox Communications and others, who agree to donate computers and peripherals that they no longer use.

About Computers 2 SD Kids:
C2SDK wants all children and their families in San Diego, regardless of their economic status, to be computer literate and have equal access to technology and the crucial educational, occupational, and financial resources that technology can provide. Economic barriers to technology hinder the growth and development of low-income families and perpetuate poverty. C2SDK responds to this digital disparity and the real-world demand for computer literacy through its Technology Assistance Program that recycles and refurbishes used computers and delivers them to families in need. C2SDK also provides each recipient with education, training and technical support necessary to achieve success.
