Gardenia House (www.gardeniahouse.org)
Gardenia House is in Georgetown, Delaware, near Lewes and Bethany. It is a ‘safe home’ for single mothers who are employed in the local poultry industry, which supplies most of the chicken consumed on the East Coast. Gardenia House is a 501(c)(3) non-profit housing women and children who would otherwise be homeless..
Monument Academy (www.monumentacademy.org)
Monument Academy’s philosophy for educating their students is rooted in a belief that all students have the capacity to succeed at high academic levels and experience positive life outcomes. While many students may have been subject to adverse childhood experiences, these events do not define who they are or predetermine their trajectories.
Monument also believes in a growth mindset, where adults and students value hard work, persistence, and the process of learning, and understand that valuing dedication and effort, not "talent" and "fixed ability," foster a love of learning and improved outcomes both academically and personally.
Monument Academy is designed with an emphasis on personalized learning, experience-based learning, and social-emotional well-being to ensure that students with disabilities or who are English Language Learners will benefit from the school.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors and supporters, Reboot, to date, has provided $204,000 in value to our recipient non profit organizations.
Many learning centers have requested laptop computers. If you have a laptop in good working order that you no longer need please consider donating it to Reboot Reuse Rebuild.
Do you know of a non-profit learning center in DC/MD/VA in need of computer equipment? Please encourage them to fill out a request on our website for consideration.
Please consider asking the IT manager at your place of business if your company has any gently used computer systems, flat screen monitors, keyboards or mice that they no longer need. Reboot Reuse Rebuild will work with your business to pick up the equipment. We will also provide the information needed to document this tax-deductible donation.
Remember, donating your computer to Reboot Reuse Rebuild is good for you (tax deductible), good for the environment (kept out of landfills) and, most important of all, very, very good for a child in need! Thank you!

July 1, 2015 – The Monument Academy (www.monumentacademy.org) is a boarding public charter school with a mission to “provide students, particularly those who have had or might have contact with the foster care system, with the requisite academic, social, emotional, and life skills to be successful in college, career and community.” Reboot Reuse Rebuild supports this mission with the donation of five laptop computers. Monument Academy will use these computers to provide “personalize learning, experience-based learning and social-emotional well-being to ensure that students with disabilities or who are English Language Learners will benefit.” Please consider donating computer equipment that you no longer need to Reboot so that we may continue to facilitate such great local educational programs as those at the Monument Academy PCS. Thank you!
June 29, 2015 – Reboot would like to thank Joseph Crawford for his generous donation of a laptop computer. Laptops are very useful to the learning centers we support as their small footprint allows more students access to computers in a limited space. The portability of laptops is also very beneficial. Each and every donation made to RRR is a valuable step in helping local at-risk students to learn and succeed. Thank you to Joe and to all of our donors and supporters!
June 23, 2015 – Hope and a Home (www.hopeandahome.org) is a local nonprofit that believes, “every child has the right to achieve his or her potential, and a healthy loving family is the best place to nurture that potential.” In combating poverty, Hope and a Home focuses “on the whole family, with children as a priority.” Reboot is proud to continue our support of this charity. We agree with the emphasis Hope and a Home places on education. They see it as “an essential key in ending generation poverty. In this spirit, [their] staff works with families and their children to implement individually tailored strategies for educational achievement.” Reboot knows that the five laptop computers we donated today will help in this mission. Thank you to our doors and supporters who make this and all our donations possible!
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< June 22, 2015 – At Inspired Teaching PCS (www.inspiredteachingschool.org) in Washington, DC,, they “ believe that every child possesses the ability to think critically, learn and understand information, and solve complex problems—and that students should spend their time in school engaged primarily in these kinds of activities. In the Inspired Teaching School, students will learn to read and write and achieve at high levels without having to surrender their intellectual curiosity and passion for learning.” Reboot was inspired by this mission and has donated five laptop computers to this local public charter school. Together, we will continue to help the students in our community. Thank you!
##############################################################June 20, 2015 – Reboot would like to thank the Bugge Family for their generous contribution of two desktop computers and monitor. Each donation helps us support the local nonprofits in DC, MD and VA that are working with at-risk students and other underserved populations in our area. Together, we are working to bridge the technology divide in our community to ensure that each child has access to the resources he or she needs to learn and succeed. Thank you!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ June 16, 2015 – As noted on the website of the Boys & Girls Club on Greater Washington, “Children today face incredible odds. Reality threatens to rob youth of the childhood they deserve. Some manage to reach adulthood intact and strong. Yet so many struggle and fall between the cracks, never realizing their potential. Here at BGCGW we help our members realize their potential and reach higher than they ever imagined.” RRR is joining the Boys & Girls Club in support of this mission with the donation of five laptop computers for their computer center. At this center and others around the DC metro area, there is still a tremendous need for computers. Please consider donating your unneeded desktop or laptop computer to Reboot Reuse Rebuild so we can refurbish it and donate it to an organization helping at-risk youth in our community. Thank you!
