Computer Refurbishing and Donation Program Computer Refurbishing and Donation Program

A big part of the BackInUse program is our computer donation and refurbishing program. Through the generous donations of Microsoft Corporation, Intel New Mexico, and numerous companies and NM State agencies, we have been able to provide nearly 1,000 computers to individuals with disabilities and of low-income, and non-profit organizations.

Pictured is a happy young lady working on a computer at Albuquerque's Explora Science Musuem. The BackInUse program supplied 20 Intel-donated laptops to Explora last summer.

Changes to Web Site

Please use the big blue "Make Request" button to let us know if you need equipment, or would like to donate equipment. When you go to the Make Request page you can indicate your choice by checking the appropriate box. If you have used the site before you know we used to have 2 separate buttons for these choices. Now you just click the one button.

The BackInUse program is also converting to a new system for tracking all our customers and their requests. We will require an email address, a contact name, and a phone number to ensure that we can get back to you.

We will also no longer be registering users through this web site. You can browse available equipment, see the types of equipment we need, and submit a request without logging on.

Remember you can also call the (505) 341-7171 number and we will answer or get back to you right away.
