Free Geek Providence rescues computers from the landfill by restoring them with open source software and donating them to organizations and individuals who cannot otherwise afford them.
We had an outgoing donation to United Methodist Elder Care and received a lovely thank you from their Development Directory, Cyndy Viveiros: Thank you so much to you and Free Geek Providence for your donation of two Hewlett Packard tower computers! Mike has been very helpful in facilitating this gift and we now have them in our office and will transferring our work over to them very soon. We were not able to afford two new computers, but our database vendor mandated that we upgrade or we would have lost our entire database! Thank you again for the good work that Free Geek does – you are heroes who really saved us!
