How Nonprofits Are Teaching Others with Refurbished Tech

AZ StRUT COVID-19 Response

AZ StRUT Mesa location is now closed for drop-off donations until further notice due to the pandemic and staffing shortages

Keep an eye on our website after the New Year for reopening plans.  We encourage small donations (no more than trunk of car full) at our Batteries Plus Bulbs partner stores. For larger donations (15 computers or more), please submit a request by clicking here. Our skeleton crew is processing and refurbishing efficiently as we can.

Thank you for your support!

We are working to keep our staff and community safe by

  1. Increasing our sanitation procedures per CDC recommendations to protect our staff, interns, volunteers and those receiving our equipment.
  2. Reducing our staff and interns to only those essential for refurbishing, pick- ups and distributions.
  3. Prioritizing equipment distributions to schools, nonprofits and Title I families with highest need.
  4. Assigning staff to work from home to support our mission.
  5. Keeping informed and adapting to address the safety of our community.

The need for our devices is critical right now.

  • AZ StRUT is experiencing increased requests for our equipment to make remote education, working from home, and connecting with healthcare resources possible. 
  • We’re talking with several Arizona school districts about how we can quickly and effectively distribute laptops to families with students at home who need to access their on-line school work.
  • We’ll be calling on our community to help us meet this need as well.  Thank you for your support. 
  • We encourage you to stay healthy, be kind and continue to  reuse and recycle. Thanks for your focus on positive actions that better our lives and environment. 

AZ StRUT is a 501c3 nonprofit that supports
Arizona’s technical education and a community effort
towards a more sustainable future.
