However, you do not need to wait for us to set up a time or shift for you to volunteer. Come in as soon as you can, and we will get you started!

Our volunteers wipe the hard drives clean, replace missing and broken parts and install screen reader software that convert the text to speech and/or screen magnification software that enlarges everything on the screen.
