Laptop Donation Drive 2020

Laptops for Kids Back-to-School Drive (August 1-31, 2021)

Each year, Tampa Bay Wave hosts an annual back-to-school laptop drive in partnership with eSmart Recycling, Absolute Marketing Solutions, and other community partners to help local kids who need laptops and other devices for school. We also choose a kids-focused charity in the region each year who can make sure the devices are distributed to local children in need.

For 2021, our Laptops for Kids drive will benefit The Skills Center, a 501(c)(3) sports-based youth development organization for kids 3-18 in Tampa.

Donate your used laptops & other electronic devices.

  • Donated laptops and tablets can be new or used, working or not.
  • Individuals and companies can drop off their devices at the Tampa Bay Wave office, located at 500 E. Kennedy Blvd, Suite 300, Tampa, 33602.
  • Drop off times will run August. 1-31, Monday-Friday, from 8am to 5pm.
  • Donation questions can be directed to info@esmartrecylcing.com.
  • eSmart Recycling will scrub, refurbish and reload laptops and tablets with Microsoft licenses and other educational applications.

Make an impact. Donate your used laptops & other electronic devices.

We’re always looking for donors & partners for our annual event.
