Second of all recognize that it's in our hearts to do all we can to assist you in any way we can with your computer related needs. Free of charge or for a donation if you can. We are here to help.
Our technicians are highly trained, many of them working in the IT field and many of them are students of computer science. Our vision is to provide them with valuable experience in the realm of computer repair and network administration.
Of course when they work on your personal computers, I oversee the entire operation. I've had over 18 years experience in computer hardware, software, and networks and am working towards a degree myself. I am also a Microsoft Certified Professional as well having the Computer Technology Association A+ certification. I also have obtained multiple certifications from independent vendors and certification authorities in the field through the years.
Computers for Charity has obtained the Microsoft Registered Refubisher status which ensures you that we employ tactics of secure data deletion and are bound by strict licensing guidelines as well as environmentally sound disposal practices. Without following these industry guidelines we would lose this status.
Our charity is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit. We help all, within our guidelines, regardless of religion, creed, race, gender or economic status. It's important for you to know that though we are based in a church, we are not here to convert or evangelize you. We are here to serve your needs. My motive for starting this effort had its Christian origins, but our volunteers and clients are from all walks of life and all different places. No one who wants to serve and learn is turned away and no one who needs help is turned away. I personally love this diversity of background and yet unity in the purpose of the charity. This is why we have such a motley crew of people. But they are all people who I love and care about very much.
We also serve an integral purpose to other charitable organizations in the community. We provide vouchers to them so that their clients their can obtain computers from us directly without any questions or hassles.
We partner with the Salvation Army, Goodwill, Cocoon Shelter, Behavioral Connections, and many others. It is integral that we get back in the business of working on computers ASAP because these clients are currently being turned away as we are only able to focus on preparing for the move.
We are still meeting every Tuesday from 4 to 8 PM and every Saturday from 12 to 4 PM and longer hours as needed. Please consider helping us out at this crucial time.
Check us out at http://computersforcharity.webs.com/ or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you!
thanks to all who currently are helping, and thanks to all who have in the past. Thanks also to all who will be helping in the future!
