BGC Mercer Computer Exchange


  • The Computer Exchange (CEX) is a low-cost service BGC Mercer provides to the community.  Through the Computer Exchange, local high school students sharpen their IT skills by preparing donated computers and equipment for resale.  Students are assisted by our professional staff members and community volunteers.  Boys & Girls Clubs members are trained to run scans, clean and repair computers, as well as install updated operating systems. The donated products are then re-sold to the public at a low price. 


    All complete PCs $50 (while supplies last) 


    Get a Dell or HP with i3, i5 or Core 2 Duo processor for $50.


    Includes flat screen monitor, keyboard, mouse & all video cables.


    Pick up is by Appointment ONLY, while supplies last.


    All proceeds from the Computer Exchange help to fund BGC Mercer workplace readiness, College & Career Access, and STEM programs for our members.


    Browse or purchase on-line, place an order, and pick up merchandise in our CEX Store. Please call ahead to make an appointment 609-695-6060.

Host a Computer Drive

  • Collect used computers and computer equipment to donate to the Computer Exchange. Computer drives are a rewarding group project for your community service organization, school group, company, or faith group. All donated computer equipment will be refurbished in our Computer Exchange and re-sold at modest prices or repurposed for use by students in our Clubs.
    By holding a computer drive, you gain positive recognition for your organization, recycle computer equipment for people to use, and provide low-cost computers to the community. All donations help raise funds to sustain Boys & Girls Clubs programming. Your donation may be tax deductible; please consult your tax professional. 
    Transportation support may be available. Let us know if you would like to arrange to have the equipment collected in your drive picked up. To make arrangements for pick-up, contact Debra Lawrey
