In partnership with Free Geek, the business community is uniting to host a series of contactless drive-through technology collection sites across the Portland Metro and Vancouver region over a one month period beginning on April 3rd

What can I donate?

In order to focus efforts on the devices most in demand, the Technology NOW campaign will only accept laptops (including their power adapters), tablets, and cellphones. 

What does the donation drop-off process look like?

Donating is simple, easy and safe by following these four steps:

  • Before you arrive at the donation site, please prepare your donation (e.g. untangle & tie up any cords, remove laptops from bags, and attach any power adapters to their associated equipment, etc.).
  • Please have the donation in one spot, within easy reach, to unload it as quickly as possible.
  • Drive to your preferred drop site and follow the signage & traffic direction to the designated line for drop-offs.
  • When it is your turn simply unload the donation from your vehicle directly into the bin provided, and you are done!

Please note that in order to adhere to recommended social distancing measures, Free Geek will only be accepting drive-up donations directly from your vehicle. Free Geek will not be able to accept walk-up donations. For the safety of our community, we ask that donors wear a face covering and maintain a 6-foot distance from staff (and other donors) at all times.

Will I get a donation receipt for this drive?
Due to the expected volume of drop offs and to ensure the safety of everyone involved, Free Geek will not be offering receipts on site at these events. You can visit receipt.freegeek.org to fill out a brief form and have a receipt emailed to you. 

All Collection Events will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m
