Sometimes there is a need for electronic wheelchairs. Gifts in-kind (non-monetary donations) help support our clients and programs in many ways. Gift certificates for grocery stores, pharmacies and large department stores help supplement the needs of those who live on a fixed income and aid programming costs.

  1. I have 2 laptops to donate but need the hard drives wiped. Please let me know if there is an organization that does this.

      Hello Ronald, thank you for wanting to donate 2 laptops. I would recommend that you contact CompuCorps.org directly:

      “Any laptop working or non working is urgently required.”
      Please call Toe at: 613-234-8988
      CompuCorps.org
      1040 Somerset Street W, Ottawa, Ontario, K1Y 4L3 | Email: info@compucorps.org

  2. Even after my repeated phone calls, voice mails and online form submission no one from CompuCorps has contacted me back for 7 computers and other electronics donation.

    Never again I’m going to waste my time with CompuCorps and would donate to someone else.

    • CharityWishList.ca

      Thank you for your feedback Nik. I am sorry you had such a bad experience with them. I will find out if their interest in computer donations has changed.

  3. I have 2 Sony trinitron tube tvs in excellent condition with remotes ( 37 in) for pick up only at least two people required for lifting or dolly

      Hello Gerry, thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately tube TVs are very hard to find new homes for. Charities tend to not want them because they take up too much space to store, are very heavy and bulky to transport,there isn’t a demand for them and flat digital TVs are relatively inexpensive. That said, if you have two that work and have an adapter to work with the Digital service now in use, you could still try IMMIGRANT WOMEN SERVICES OTTAWA Shahnaz Perveen, Transition and Housing Support Worker
