Within the walls of Drexel University, there’s a student organization called TechServ whose mission is simple: fix computers, donate them to nonprofits and teach computer literacy to help bridge the digital divide.
When the group was officially disbanded in 2004, TechServ — which was founded in 2002 — inherited the remaining equipment and carried on its mission of bridging the digital divide.
TechServ’s team of technicians are getting together on Saturday, Aug. 6, to offer free tech support and advice under a format they’ve called the Community Genius Bar. Just like at the Apple store, minus the chaos.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the TechServ team will be at People’s Emergency Center, located at 329 N. 39th St.
The organization also takes in equipment donations, provided they comply with a few specifications. Click here to find out if that old laptop you have in the basement could be of help to someone in need.-30-
