I volunteered a total of eight months at this location and I have to say, these are some of the most wonderful people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. They treated me with kindness and respect which was reflected to each and every customer they interacted with. Listening to how passionate they were about their work and how much they loved helping the community was a humbling experience. Each sale was done with honesty and with each interaction the employees would try their best to find a desktop or laptop that would best fit their needs.
BAYM also holds classes for youth, where they teach them about computers, hardware, software, and basic programing. Once the youth have completed the course they receive a certification and a free desktop computer. BAYM has been around for about twenty years now and during my time there I spoke to customers who had been doing business with BAYM from the beginning. Every customer I spoke to had the nicest comments, not only about the service done for tem, but for their children through their classes.
This is a wonderful place filled with wonderful people who try their best to support the community and could use all the love and support in return from us. Please, as I have come to do myself, donate your used computers or laptops, and at least take a look here before purchasing something brand new. Many of their computers were on par with newer computers at such a reasonable price. We can't let these wonderful businesses be drowned out by the bigger corporation, because unlike those big corporations, these businesses try to do their best for us.
So lets try and do our best for them and maybe, we can make that right step forward toward bettering our city for our children.
