" 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."
