Helping technology help people
Triad residents come to Tech Night with devices that have issues. When they leave, their laptops, PCs, tablets and cell phones are virus-free and running faster. No less important, they have a better grasp on how their devices can add to their lives on the day-to-day. Tech Night is free. Anyone who has a tech issue, or who wants to understand their device better, can walk into a participating community center on Tech Night and get one-on-one support until their issue is resolved. These days, quality of life is influenced by one’s access to technology – but not everyone has the proficiency they need to do so effectively. At Allegacy, we wanted to help expand this project’s reach, so we partnered with those who launched it: the tech firm Inmar and the community tech non-profit WinstonNet. Together, we’re working to break down those barriers.
Be involved. Support the good.
How do we express our concern for the community? By rolling up our sleeves and getting involved – not just because it feels good to give (though it does) – but because it’s the right thing to do. We will always do what’s right for your wellbeing, and for the health of our community as a whole.
