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
Free I.T. Athens will not open on Sunday, December 9th due to the weather advisory. Please stay safe and warm out there!
We will be closed October 31st, 2018 for Halloween. Be safe and have a happy Halloween everyone.
Sorry guys and gals
Due to volunteers being out of town and sick, orientation will not be staffed Tuesday, October 16th, 2018. We’re very sorry. Please come back next orientation date.
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.
