Welcome to the website for the FIRST Team 753 robotics team: The High Desert Droids. We are a group of high school students located in Bend, Oregon that is involved in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics program. We come from diverse backgrounds, but we form a student–driven team of bright individuals drawn together by a passion for working as a team, building robots, and fostering excitement in science and technology through FIRST. Thank you for taking the time to find out more about donating to The High Desert Droids, Team 753. If you have any questions, you may contact us through our Contact Us page.
When you donate to us you are not just funding some high school club. You are funding the future engineers of this nation. When a student in a FIRST team graduates, they move on to college to study in the fields of science, technology, business and engineering. But don’t take our word for it; here is a short video about what FIRST is and why, by helping fund a robotics team, you are helping students.
How to Donate
People find the easiest way to donate is to visit us at, or donate to, our annual garage sale. We are hosting our garage sale at Mountain View High school on November 10th from 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM. We are accepting donations on Friday, November 9th from 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM. If you have any items that you would like to donate to us such as FURNITURE, household items, tools, toys etc., please do, we can use all the help we can get. Please keep in mind that this is a garage sale, we need good re-saleable items, and we have to pay to throw out any non-saleable items.
If you can't donate items to us, you can also help us by stopping by, getting to meet the team and looking for something fun to buy. You can also help us by handing out the flyer below to friends and family and posting at your local business. If you are a business and are interested in becoming a sponsor, please visit our sponsorship page here.
Team 753 would like to take the time to thank you, and the community, for your continued support!
