CRC Cares & Sponsorships

Computer Resource Center has been based in Rochester, Minnesota since 2003 and has had the pleasure of helping hundreds of people in Rochester and the surrounding areas.  Starting this year, we at CRC are looking to give back to our community.  We are working with local charities to offer our customers a discount on our services when they bring in a donation for our charity of the quarter!  Each quarter we will highlight a new Rochester area based charity along with a list of the items that they are in need of.

CRC's Charity Partners:


Paws and Claws Humane Society is Rochester's animal shelter of choice and they have worked tirelessly for over 40 years to shelter animals and find them great adoption homes.

Paws and Claws mission is to:

  • Promote and provide humane protection and shelter for abandoned or lost companion animals.

  • Seek adoptive homes for companion animals under our protective care.

  • Provide public education regarding the societal problem of animal overpopulation.

  • Promote the principles of responsible companion animal care.

  • Advocate the spaying and neutering of all companion animals.

Paws and Claws has a wide variety of items that they are in constant need of.  Among these high need, items include both dog and cat food, toys, leashes, beds, and a host of other pet and office supplies.  You can see the full list of needed items on the Paws and Claws website HERE

If you need work on your home computer, laptop, or tablet and you bring in a minimum $5 donation from the Paws and Claws list above, CRC will give you $25 off any service labor completed that day!
