Inmar will again lend the skills of its Technology Gurus to the community, hosting its second Community Tech Night in conjunction with WinstonNet. The Technology team members will be available from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Thursday, January 28, 2016, at the Fourteenth Street Community Center, 2020 N.E. 14th Street in Winston-Salem. No appointment is necessary.
Anyone needing help with a technology/smartphone/tablet/desktop computer problem, or wanting to learn more about using them, is invited to attend. A Chromebook notebook computer will also be given away.
This second Tech Night is offered after receiving exceptional response from the community after the first Tech Night, which was held in November 2015. The team will man a “Help Desk” where they will provide one-on-one assistance, at no cost, to those who have questions or need help with anything from troubleshooting problems with a personal computer or mobile device to learning ways in which technology can help their daily lives. Members of WinstonNet will also be on-site to provide assistance. WinstonNet is a community technology nonprofit with a mission to close the digital divide and serve as a resource for computer access and training.
“While there are outlets for legal, medical and other professionals to provide community service and although technology has become as necessary for modern living as electricity, there is really no outlet today for people to seek assistance when their complex and often costly devices break down. There are also few outlets to visit to get the “how to” of technology services. What our team does each day is important to Inmar, to our clients and consumers – this provides another outlet and opportunity to have an impact that matters. Whether it is by helping fix someone’s device, or teaching them how to do it themselves, it may even spark that someone’s interested in a career in technology,” said Greg.
Lynda Golf, Executive Director, WinstonNet, says “We are very pleased to partner with Inmar and their tech gurus for a second Tech Night. They are providing such a great community service that will benefit many residents in Winston-Salem who can’t afford technical support.
