Thank you for your interest in donating technology that is no longer being used. We’re working on ways to provide COVID-secure drop off locations where you can easily and safely drop off devices as part of your daily exercise (under current Coronavirus restrictions). If you want to donate, at the moment the best way to do that is to email email@example.com and we will work out the safest way for you to donate that technology.
We are taking the risk of the spread of Coronavirus very seriously. We ask that you donate your technology in a plastic bag to stop them from mixing with other equipment, and we will wipe and thoroughly clean the technology.
It’s up to you! Our teams of volunteers will wipe and reset the device, to make sure it is ready for the new person/family. We will preform numerous checks to make sure that your privacy and data is protected and not shared. Alternatively, if you would like to wipe your data yourself, you can do so. Our friends at Digital Access West Yorkshire have published this guide on how to wipe your data.
Once the team has been donated and all data wiped, no personal data will remain and therefore will no longer be accessible. Please make sure to save any important data onto another device before donating.
If you want to help through financial support, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send you information from our Amazon Wishlist on the type of products that we need – every donation is hugely appreciated!
Like other organisations, to donate you must be over the age of 18 years. You also must own the item that you want to donate (if it’s a catalogue purchase, you must have paid the product’s payments in full).
The York Pi Jam Group who are organising this campaign only prepare the technology to be dispatched to it’s new home. The devices will be given to schools to distribute to students who need the tech. The schools can submit their interest for devices through the email email@example.com. Decisions on where to send tech to will be based on availability and a panel of volunteers who will assess the local area and amount of students who don’t have devices.
