PC Donations

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED...    With Covid19 we are experiencing a significant increase in requests for PCs. Our immediate needs are:
  • LAPTOPS are our primary need at the moment
    (they need to have at least an Intel Core I3, or equivalent, processor)
  • Desktops (that have at least an Intel Core I5, or equivalent, processor)
  • Flat Screen Monitors (that support DVI, VGA or HDMI connections) and connectors
  • Power Cords (for desktops and monitors)
  • USB Mice and USB Keyboards

We put in new disk drives and are happy to receive donations of PCs without disk drives. We can also take out the disk drives and return them to you for your own processing.

Every donation counts. Thank you.

Contact us at PCDonations@TDIConnect.org or call Ray Ingram at 609-462-2933

Data Overwriting and Destruction

An issue for some equipment donors is the ability to ensure that any residual data is effectively made inaccessible. TDI Connect has three approaches to gain the required level of removal of access to data:

1. The disk drive in the PC is removed by the donor organization prior to donation of the PCs.

2. TDI Connect will remove the drives and give them back to the donor organization for their own processing.

Please note that in approach 1. and 2., TDI Connect puts new disk drives in the PCs. Generally these are Solid State Drives.

3. TDI Connect machines are all loaded with the Xubuntu variant of the Linux operating system. This creates a completely new file system on the disk drives and removes access to old data. This is equivalent to doing a Windows Refresh for Windows PCs.
