Closed Christmas

It’s the holiday season and Free I.T. Athens hopes everyone will have a wonderful Christmas with their families. Heads up, we usually have orientation every other Tuesday, but the upcoming one lands on Christmas day. Whoops! That one is canceled. We’ll see all you prospective volunteers on January 8th, 2019 at 6:30 PM for the first orientation session of the new year. We will also be closed the following Wednesday, December 26th, 2018.


Have a merry Christmas and GNU year,
Charlie & GNU/Kris

Shout Out on Stuff You Should Know podcast


Years ago, Joel (all around FRITA superhero) wrote to the hosts of the Stuff You Should Know podcast. His letter was about ewaste and the work volunteers do at Free I.T. Athens, and it resulted in a really neat shout-out on the popular podcast based in Atlanta.

Late last month Stuff You Know did an update to a previous recycling episode. Guess which nonprofit is mentioned in the discussion on ewaste? Free I.T. Athens!

Check out “Recycling Update: How’s It Going?” to learn about the world of recycling and give yourself a little cheer for supporting your community when Josh and Chuck mention Free I.T. Athens.
