NEED A COMPUTER?
With the support of community organizations and businesses, Let’s Get Together collects used devices such as laptops, desktops, tablets and phones, to refurbish and circulate them back to the individuals and families in need across Ontario.
We see computers as the “new backpacks” and believe people of all ages should have them at home to pursue their education, employment, have access to support resources, and connect with others especially during these difficult times.
If you need a refurbished device, fill out the application below.
We will follow up with what options are available and the next steps.
Due to increased demand, this process might take longer than usual.
