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.
Saturday Oct 25 will be our last public hurrah at 135 Webster St in Pawtucket. It will be by appointment only. We are ceasing normal public operations and will commence shutdown procedures. Remaining inventory will be stored for safe keeping. Free Geek Providence, the organization, will not be shutting down - we will be looking for new space! We hope to enter a new phase in our future and begin our new programs in 2015! Please keep an eye open for us. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 401-484-8884 or email@example.com. Thank you to all the volunteers! See you soon!

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!
