  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.

    • CharityWishList.ca

      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
      1040 Somerset Street W, Ottawa, Ontario, K1Y 4L3 | Email: [email protected]

  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.

  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

    • CharityWishList.ca

      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

      Or recycle (note that TVs can not be put in the regular garbage):
      Hope this helps, thanks.

  4. you mention that you take tube TV’s that are less than 27″. I have a 20″ tube and 19″ tube with built in DVD player – I can lift and deliver – they are not the super heavy variety – fairly recent as far as Tube TV’s go.

    Are you still taking them at the Merivale location – I can drop off.

  5. I have a 55″ rear-projection television that I would like to donate. It is heavy and would require two strong people to move it. Is this something that you would be interested in? Thanks very much.

    • CharityWishList.ca

      Hello, thank you for wanting to find a new home for your rear-projection television. Because of weight and size it is harder to find charities interested in this item. However, I would suggest that you contact directly “IMMIGRANT WOMEN SERVICES OTTAWA”, Shahnaz Perveen, Transition and Housing Support Worker
      Telephone number: 613-729-3145 ext. 231, they are interested in TV donations in general. Website: http://www.immigrantwomenservices.com (Note that CharityWishList.ca is like a directory, it doesn’t collect anything itself.) Thanks, Michelle Beaupre, Owner, CharityWishList.ca

  6. I would like to donate some used cell phones. Are there any organizations that would be able to use them? What about if they have a cracked screen – are there organizations that will fix and donate them?

  7. If someone wants to donate a used good condition laptops/desktops computer please contact IWSO at [email protected] or call 613-729-3145 ext231.
    I have potential clients. thanks

  8. I have a working tv but old style, not flat screen. Is there any interest in that?

    How about an X-Box game set with games? Old but think it still works. Our kids outgrew it.

  9. Hi there,

    In the Kanata, Ottawa area…trying to find a place to donate 24″ monitors for computers. We have about 20 of them approximately. They work. Various models. Good Condition just down sizing offices and moving.

    I tried contacting the Compucorps place but no response yet.

    We also have lots of office supplies like Binders(some even new) and organizers and file folders, and holders. Just not sure of anywhere people might use these?

  10. Hello Betsy and Michelle,

    I volunteer with CompuCorps and we may be able to help you with the monitors. I will call you tomorrow. We have just moved and we request your patience!

    We have a van for pickups and we provide a tax receipt for the full market value when donated for our TechReuse program.

    As well, we are having a Back to School -Tech yard sale – in Westboro on Saturday, Aug 28th and an Ottawa outside donation event on Aug 27th. Those days could be a great time for people to donate and to get instant tax receipts or to drop by for some cool tech stuff.. Check EventBright for free tickets. Stay safe everyone.

  11. Karen Lynn Harris

    I work for a company and we have over 15 older smartphones – most still functional. Would like to donate to someone who can use them as cell phones rather than e-waste. Is there anyone in the Ottawa area that needs them?

    I have a 43″ Sony panel TV (not a smart TV). Does any organization need my used TV?

      – Salvation Army
      – Saint Vincent de Paul
      – Immigrant Women Services Ottawa
