The Giving Project- KGUN9 Tucson

We Care Tucson is KGUN9 The Giving Project recipient this month

About Us

We Care Tucson is 100% focused on the Tucson community. WCT bridges the digital divide. To accomplish this, we collect used technology, i.e. computers, monitors, cell phones, and more. We sort the donations, refurbish what we can, and recycle what we can't use - helping to keep all of these devices out of our local landfills.

 

The refurbished computers and other usable electronics go into our store and are available for sale to the general public. We accept applications from those who are economically challenged for our low-cost computer program to help bridge the digital divide.

WCT's other program is the rental of durable medical equipment, which people can borrow for a minimal administrative fee, plus we provide free medical supplies for those in need.
