Computer giveaway and parts/donation drive! Jay has several computers ready to go! We can always use donations of computers and parts! We will have some fundraiser sodas and snacks like beef jerky available!!
A few things to know before you come!
1. Most of the computers he gives away do not use Windows--he loads Linux onto the hard drives. It's a little different so bring some paper and pen to take notes on how to use it! The class takes around 30 minutes, depending on the number of people there and how many questions they ask.
2. Please do not bring children with you. We have no way to watch them while you are doing the Linux class. This has created some problems in the past, so we feel it's just better if they are not present.
3. Computers are given on a first come, first served basis. We ask that you bring student IDs for kids OR something to verify that you have income limitations. (Unemployment check stubs, EBT card, SSI/medicaid card, etc.) We don't pry into your personal reasons for needing a computer, and there is no need to be embarrassed in attending. We do this to help people, not to make them uncomfortable.
4. These computers are not gamer systems nor good enough for graphic designing. They are basic computers, good enough to get online and do homework or job searches. It's rare for us to get a computer that has all the bells and whistles of newer models. Keep that in mind lol.
Please feel free to SHARE this event with anyone that you know that would benefit. Definitely need to be LOCAL as we don't have a way to ship computers to people or deliver them outside our local area.
