Aspire is No Longer Accepting Electronic Donations and Will Be Closing Its Computer Store

We are closing our E-cycle and Computer store businesses in order to bring higher
quality of services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are focusing our efforts
to include the individuals we support in meaningful community jobs, activities and residential housing.
The E-cycle program has been a big part of the community, and at one time employed many people in
purposeful work that benefited our environment but as Southern Oregon Aspire focuses on its mission
of community inclusion for those we support, the decision has been made to discontinue the program
and close the store.

As of Friday October 25th, the electronics recycling department will no longer accept donations
