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 proceeds from the Computer Exchange help to fund BGC Mercer workplace readiness, College & Career access and STEM programs for our members.
The Computer Exchange is currently open by appointment only. Our hours are limited and we will continue to maintain social distancing practices. Appoinments are available Tuesdays & Thursdays 12 pm-3 pm. To schedule an appointment please send an email to Alex Sheppard, Director of IT, firstname.lastname@example.org
We are currently accepting donations of gently used computers that are less than five (5) years old. To make a donation please schedule an appointment with Alex Sheppard, Director of IT, email@example.com. If you are a company or organization looking to host a computer drive (and collect donated computers) or make a large in-kind donation of gently used computers, please contact Sarah Julian, Director of Corporate Engagement, firstname.lastname@example.org.
