" Our Tech Guys fix 'em and we give them away. Last year we were
donated just over 400 computers by business and individuals. Of
those 400+, 219 were refurbishable or met our specifications. Those
computers were passed to the HeliOS Project in August and by
November, they were all in the homes of kids who needed them.
"This year, as it was last year, Greg Bodle has graciously given
us his Union Park bar on 6th street so the madness can ensue. Well,
the madness was last year. We are hoping that lessons learned from
the mayhem of 2009 will translate to a much smoother and efficient
event. This year we have organized actual teams ahead of time as
opposed to people just arriving and jumping in where they were
needed. Our teams are broken down to Intake and Evaluation, Salvage
and Parts, E-waste Management, Repair and then Install. If you
would like to see the google group we've designed to harness the
chaos, you can visit it here."
