I started with CTAC-NH.org, shortly after it's opening over 3 years ago. I mostly work as a tech on Saturdays , but also have represented them at fairs, and have collected used computers from various sources for them, and have even sold some of heir products as well.
They do a good job of making sure the system functions properly and works to keep the costs as low as possible for it's customer. We securely wipe all hard drives as the 1st procedure when they come in the door. We even offer a certificate of that fact if needed for the donars records. Most often anything you donate can be written off as a tax deduction. That is something you need to check with your tax preparer on.
We install Windows 7 and do all the updates, as well as add some verfy good, free, working programs that help maintain the operation of the system. We also do repairs, and we will do the repairs that most other places will not, and at a cost well below anyone else may charge you.
We service both the regular consumer and corporate customer, and the special circumstnces indiviual and other non profits and schools. Is it free, no! Is it cheap, not really! But it is relativly inexpenssive and helpful to the community.
If you have any older IT equipment, of any type, plase bring to us so we can repurpose and recycle it so those who can't aford a brand new are not left behind.
we are now located at 100 willow st. manchester, NH
