Please come on Wednesdays to our computer renewal clinic and potluck—3:30 pm – 7:30 pm (come any time in that range), in Harvard Square.

 

We can provide you, your business or your family with a good refurbished desktop. Please call 617-325-9526 or email AdamFrost@computerCareandLearning.com to make arrangements to get your machine. We ask for a $50 donation from people who don’t have much money, and $125 from people and businesses with moderate income. We have a volunteer option for people who have no money for a computer. Our machines are older, but industrial strength, and they come with Boston’s only lifetime warranty—as long as our clinic is alive, we’ll help you.

 

You can also bring your computer or other device in for repair or to get instruction from enthusiastic volunteers with professional supervision. We ask for a modest donation if you are satisfied with our help.

 

This is also a great opportunity to learn how to set up, use and fix computers. These are valuable job skills in any profession, and we are particularly geared to help computer professionals in training to get valuable field experience while being supervised by seasoned computer professionals.

 

The Get Connected! Clinic is one of the helping programs of ADBAR, www.ethiopianwomen.org. Financial donations to ADBAR are very welcome, please click on the Donate link at www.ethiopianwomen.org.

 

SPECIAL NEEDS NOTICE:  We are hungry for netbooks and laptops, laptop carrying cases, and flat screen monitors,. We’d also love some working printers, and usb mice and usb keyboards.

 

Please join us Wednesdays, 3:30 pm – 7:30 pm  in the basement of the Old Cambridge Baptist Church, 1151 Mass. Ave, two blocks from the Harvard T stop. Please park on street ONLY, not in the Church lot. Bring quarters for meter parking—VIGOROUSLY ENFORCED by the Cambridge traffic people.   Just for emphasis: NEVER park in the Church parking lot, which is constantly patrolled by hungry tow trucks.

 

  We have an informal potluck throughout the clinic time– if you can, please bring some food or drink to share.

 

We’ll continue our work of renewing used computers so that families without much money can use them for job-hunting, communication, education, and recreation. We’re a team of volunteers with a wide range of abilities and experience, working together to help one another learn how to refurbish computers from the ground up, and make them ready for beginners to use. This is a good educational and networking opportunity for all who can come and help.
