Computer on the blink? Fix-It-Free Day Jan. 12

By Lois Lee
Special to The SUN

The mission of the Computer Fix-It-Free Day is to provide free technical assistance to members of our community who would otherwise not be able to afford it.

The event is to benefit those who have a computer by means of hand-me-down or charity that is not functioning correctly. Local computer technicians are donating their time.

Used parts will be provided at no charge for the purpose of repair by the Humane Society and the volunteering computer technicians. If new parts are needed, they will be provided at a discount.

If you would like to donate parts and/or used computers, sponsors gladly accept items that are less than 5 years old. Please label the items “Fix-It-Free” and take them to the Humane Society Thrift Store prior to noon on Jan. 11.

Computer repairs are by appointment only.

For eligibility details, call The Training Advantage, 264-5627, Ext. 1 or 4, or stop in at 527 San Juan St., Suite D (In the plaza across from downtown Subway) before 4 p.m. on Jan. 11.
