Students for Computer Recycling to Outfit Underrepresented
Nonprofit Groups in Education
What We Do
SCROUNGE accepts donations of unwanted computer equipment from all over York, Pennsylvania, and surrounding areas. We refurbish the old computers and donate them to nonprofit organizations with a free version of linux operating system installed. Computers that cannot be refurbished are disassembled into their basic pieces and collected in bulk to be recycled in an environmentally friendly way.
SCROUNGE sponsors some of the following events:
- snow tubing
- LAN parties
- Donate 100 computers to the community for the semester
- Recruit three new volunteers from the student body during the semester
- Hold one SCROUNGE-member discounted event during the semester
- Find destinations for getting rid of all recycled material
We donate refurbished computers strictly to nonprofit organizations such as The Crispus Attucks Early Learning Center, The Jewish Community Center in York, The MLA Learning Center, and the Spanish Center in York, The September House.

We take donations from businesses all over south central Pennsylvania as well as donations from individuals in the area. Some large donations have come from Harley-Davidson, the Wolf Organization in York, and Johns Hopkins Children's Hospital.
