Following the successful 2020 Tech Drive, London Drugs is partnering with local affiliates of Computers for Schools Plus (CFS+), a Government of Canada program that collects donated computers, trains youth to refurbish the devices, and distributes the refurbished tech to schools, nonprofits, libraries, First Nations groups, and students.
“Last year London Drugs provided over 200 computers to students across Western Canada through our inaugural Tech Drive event,” says Nick Curalli, vice president of technology solutions.
Laptops are the most in-demand with desktops, tablets and mobile phones all being accepted. Families and students requesting donated computers can apply directly through the appropriate Computers for Schools Plus affiliate.
Eighty-two London Drugs stores across Western Canada will be accepting used computers as part of this initiative. Tech departments will be working with CFS+ affiliates in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba to restore and distribute the devices donated to our Tech Drive.
