Important Information About Our COVID-19 Response

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kramden has made the following changes immediately:

  1. Individual equipment donations will no longer be accepted.
  2. All volunteer events are cancelled, including Wednesday Work Nights, daytime volunteering, and Mini Geek-A-Thons.
  3. All surplus sales events and walk-in sales are cancelled.
  4. All in-person technical support and repair services are suspended. We will still try to offer technical support over the phone.

We have been working with families and educational institutions to provide more than 500 computers to students who do not have access to a computer at home. Unfortunately all computers have been allocated and we cannot make any more appointments.

Thank you for your understanding during this stressful time. Please check this site and our Facebook page for updates. We hope to be back to normal operations as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we hope that the community stays safe and healthy.
