Kansas City

Retail Location & Electronics Recycling Center

Previously known as Connecting for Good (founded in 2011), the organization became part of PCs for People in 2020. In addition to providing affordable computers, internet service, and free e-recycling, our retail space offers free digital literacy courses daily. 

During tax season, we host the VITA tax program, allowing Kansas City residents to have their taxes filed for free with the help of tax volunteers through the KC Metro Tax Coalition. 

Our goal is to make a better future in the Kansas City area by empowering businesses and organizations to make a positive community and environmental impact.

Meet Our Director

Tom Esselman

Tom made his mark as an innovation leader at Hallmark Cards, where he created and managed the Song Cards product line, and other emotional sending products enhanced by technology.  This experience led Tom to become an advocate for older adults and families without access to technology and computer skills. Becoming part of the PCs For People organization fulfills a vision Tom articulated when he joined Connecting For Good as CEO in 2016:  for digital inclusion to become a financially sustainable model for every community, providing demonstrable long-term improvements in Education, Employment, and Economic Impact, and the Environment.  Tom and his wife Mary live in Kansas City and have 4 kids, and a growing number of grandchildren.
