  • “Our (computer donation) requests are for families of members who cannot afford to purchase home computers. They are low income families whose child/children attend our programs. They currently access the computers we have at the program, but they are limited to our program hours. If they had laptops, they would be able to do their homework at home, which would enable them to complete their assignments and enroll in more classes.”

    Boys and Girls Club of Saskatoon Director
  • “Being a financial institution, security is a major concern, and we always receive a certificate of destruction to confirm that any hard drives have been properly disposed of by being shredded. This does help to provide peace of mind that none of the information on the drives can fall into the hands of someone that may use it for criminal purposes”
