Purple Elephant Computer Factory


The Purple Elephant addresses two different, but complementary needs: 1) many individuals and companies in the Raleigh area need to responsibly dispose of perfectly good PCs that have been replaced by newer models, and 2) many local families need access to a home PC, but cannot afford to spend $500+ for a new system. We accept donated computers, refurbish them, and place them back into the community. Over the last 6 years, over 5000 of our refurbished PCs have been placed back into productive use all over North Carolina and beyond. We have worked with a variety of organizations in the Raleigh area, such as Rotary Club, Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, and YWCA, to place hundreds of PCs with families - at no cost to them. For example, in 2010, 150 PCs are going to the families of NC National Guard members. Some of our refurbished systems are also available for sale to the general public, for a very low price, at our two retail locations, helping us to recoup some of our costs.
