The pandemic has accelerated the need for businesses, health services, and education to transition to virtual connection, and Goodwill San Antonio is responding to the need for greater access through its electronics store and technology access program.
“Digital inclusion is paramount to empowering individuals to reach their fullest potential,” stated Angelika Kluna, Senior Electronics Program Manager for Goodwill San Antonio. “Now, more than ever, our mission is to responsibly refurbish electronic devices and put them back into the community in order for local residents and students to have access not only to the technology itself, but to the opportunities technology provides – from obtaining an education and completing employment applications, to information sharing, and managing everyday tasks such as bill paying and healthcare needs.”
Goodwill San Antonio is uniquely qualified to offer technology as part of their Business Services operation. Not only does Goodwill have a unique access point to inventory through commercial and residential donations, they are also a licensed Microsoft Registered Refurbisher.
For individuals who do not have access to a computer or mobile device to view inventory and place an order, the Electronics Store is open to customers Monday – Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. inside the Goodwill Clearance Center at 4810 Eisenhauer Road, San Antonio, TX 78218.
