Washington Apple Pi Computer Reclamation
The Reclamation Project of Washington Apple Pi has worked
since 1993 to place Apple and Macintosh computers into the
hands of children who would not otherwise have access to
computers. Computers are donated to the organization and a
group of member volunteers then refurbishes the computers.
These refurbished computers are then places in schools,
daycare centers, group homes and with families that could
not otherwise afford a computer.
The Reclamation Project of Washington Apple Pi, Ltd. is
above all else a strictly volunteer program. Volunteers run
the program, refurbish and set up the final delivery of the
machines. While Washington Apple Pi is a not for profit
organization, it is not a charitable organization under the
IRS. Therefore, donations made to the reclamation project
are not tax deductible.
Donations may be made to:
Washington Apple Pi
12022 Parklawn Drive
Rockville, MD 20852
The office is open to accept donations on Mondays,
Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 am till 1 p.m.
Due to volunteer time constraints, the reclamation
project can only schedule to pick up computers from
organizations that are donating multiple systems. You must

regional area. We will not pay shipping fees for donations
