Do you have any old laptop or tablet lying around that you don’t use anymore or need? You can help a poor family or senior, right here in Toronto.
Seniors Tech Services is collecting used laptops and tablets for poor families and isolated seniors who cannot afford to buy their own devices. They are donated to reputable charitable organisations who serve poor families and seniors. You will receive a letter of acknowledgement and a tax receipt from the organisation, depending on the condition of the device.
Your laptop or tablet can help children from poor families with online lessons, and seniors to stay connected with family and friends and attend virtual activities from seniors centres.
We will wipe all your data from the device and thoroughly clean and sanitise them before making arrangements for the donation.
In September we collected 3 tablets, one was brand new, from two clients and donated them to the Philip Aziz Centre for Hospice Care for their community hospice clients.
Please let us know if you would like to participate in this program and we will contact you to arrange a safe, socially distanced pickup.

From Mashable News we have found this video on how seniors are travelling around the world using Virtual Reality.
Virtual reality is an innovative tool being used to recreate memories for seniors and allow them to experience events or places that they may never be able to encounter.
