Device Drop Off Zone

Do you have an old functional laptop, smartphone or tablet that is collecting dust at home and no longer being used? PAVED Arts is proud to announce that we are now an official Device Drop-Off location for all of your unused, but functional, devices. 

We have many people in our community who do not have access to these tools. Not only are they necessary for digital creative expression, but they are also educational tools that provide information to our community on how to stay safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

PAVED Arts is proud to partner with Chokecherry Studios in this initiative, and we are looking forward to working directly with them for guidance on putting your old devices into the hands of those who need them most. Please consider donating your functional, unused smartphones, computers, or tablets to PAVED Arts, so that we can provide them to those in need. All donors of functional devices will receive a free 1 year PAVED Arts membership. If you or someone you know is in need of a device, please get in touch with us. 

If you are interested in donating a functional device to PAVED Arts, please review the detailed instructions below:

– PAVED is interested in the following items: laptops, tablets, smartphones
– All devices may be dropped off at PAVED Arts (located at 424 – 20th Street West)
