Kiwanians offer help for stricken computers
March 29, 2011
Forget the Geek Squad. Bring ailing PCs to downtown Issaquah for some TLC.
Members of the Issaquah Kiwanis Young Professionals plan a free computer clinic April 2. The session runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Gibson Hall, 105 Newport Way S.W.
Members can run hardware diagnostics, scrub machines of viruses and spyware, and conduct some performance tuning. The team can also offer advice and tips on buying a computer.
People should bring only computers and power cords to the clinic. The club has monitors, keyboards and more to plug in for testing.
The computer help is free, but club members accept donations. Funds raised during the event support the group’s community service programs.
The group is also offering free recycling for computers, laptops and monitors at the event.
The clinic is part of a worldwide day of service for Kiwanians. Members of the local club plan to scan documents for the Issaquah History Museums, remove invasive plants from parks and collect items for Eastside Baby Corner.
Issaquah Kiwanis Young Professionals formed more than a year ago as a spin-off of the Kiwanis Club of Issaquah.
