Doing good is no longer reserved for non-profits. Corporate Social Responsibility, and the call to go beyond “business as usual,” has reached near-expectation status for all businesses, big or small, including the law sector. Learn From Home Project (LFHP) is a program aiming to create a more socially responsible avenue that would involve attorneys and law offices donating dated office equipment and computers.
While talk of technology often centers on the latest and greatest, here at LFHP, we have seen a growing awareness that old equipment cannot be dumped in the landfill. For law firms, the question of what to do with the sluggish, tired computers carries a greater importance because of client confidentiality. Just as an attorney would shred outdated paper documents, files on a hard drive must be kept private or destroyed when discarding old devices. Removing the hard drive is the easiest and cheapest way for a firm to ensure client confidentiality. Once a device becomes outdated, there is no reason to retain the computer, that is where Learn From Home Project steps in.
Learn From Home Project is a program that under the umbrella of Computers with Causes and the Giving Center receives donated technology and equipment from members of the legal profession and donates it back to needy individuals who are learning or working from home. We are a place to learn about giving, and a place to discover how to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. For the most impactful giving we offer transparency like no other. The opportunity to see, hear, and fully understand the difference you have made in the lives of others is what separates LFHP from others.
Whether you’re an individual, a partner at your firm, or a corporation, LFHP accepts a wide variety of computer and equipment donations across the United States and beyond. Computers, tablets, laptops, corporate bulk donations of servers, workstations, hardware or complete desktop computer systems, and all other types of computer peripherals can be used to help make a difference in someone’s life. Each and every donation of electronics and computers directly supports youth centers, military veterans, low income individuals trying to work from home, and distant learning for children.
Some of you have been wondering if it is possible to purchase and ship brand new computer equipment directly to our organization. Our answer is YES, that would help tremendously and will have an immediate impact for the kids and families we help. All you have to do is set our address as the "ship to" and then either call or email to let us know what you are donating and we will send you your paperwork for tax deduction purposes. We are always in need of tablets, laptops, desktops and hard drives and receiving them brand new would save us money and time rebuilding and refurbishing before sending the equipment to those we serve. If you plan on purchasing new equipment, please either call us at 888-228-7320 to discuss your generous donation or send a message through the contact form here.
