Free Geek Helps Metropolitan Learning Center Reduce Energy Use
The Metropolitan Learning Center, a Portland Public Schools alternative program, contacted us a few months ago to see if we could help them replace 25 aging CRT monitors with LCD monitors to reduce their energy use in the computer lab. Thanks to a generous institutional donation, and the hard work of volunteer monitor testers, we are gradually shifting them over to a more environmentally-friendly program:
This is all possible as part of our Hardware Grants program, a predominantly volunteer-powered branch of Free Geek committed to getting computers and related electronics into the hands of deserving community-change and community-service organizations.
Thank you donors, volunteers and Hardware Grants interns for making a difference!
