In-Kind Donations

New or nearly new computers and related equipment are needed to provide a personal computer to members of the exonerated community. If you have such equipment, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with product's make, model number, and your location. For portable equipment, please include whether you are willing to ship to California.

Additionally, we need gift cards to major clothing retailers (i.e. Sears, GAP) and grocery stores so that we can provide exonerees with sufficient clothing and food upon their release from prison as they transition back to their communities. If you are interested in providing a gift card, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.
