The Sheriff’s Toy Project is a Microsoft-registered refurbisher, and is required to wipe all hard drives so that no data will be retained. The Toy Project, along with Heald College students and staff members, refurbishes donated computers and makes them available to non-profit organizations, schools, and low-income families at no cost. Over 1100 refurbished computers have been given away during the last nine years.

Arrangements to have acceptable items picked up can be made by contacting Deputy Sam Flores at, or by calling Officer Cindy Garcia at (916) 361-4571. For further information, visit the website or e-mail instructor Bob Johnston at
