Important Information About Kramden Operations During COVID:

Kramden has resumed working operations and has made a number of important changes, so please read the following carefully: 

  1. All volunteer events including Wednesday Work Nights and Mini Geek-A-Thons are still on hold for the time being.
  2. Surplus Sales have resumed with social distancing measures in place and will be conducted from 5:00PM until 6:30PM outside our office doors. Check out the Surplus Sales page for upcoming sales events.
  3. In-person technical support and repair services are still suspended: we offer technical support over the phone if needed.
  4. We are taking individual computer donations: donation carts and receipts have been placed outside our office doors.  Equipment can dropped off anytime between 9AM and 5PM during weekday hours (we cannot accept weekend donations) and will be collected every hour.

Thanks to the overwhelming support of the community, Kramden continues to serve those in need of a computer. Since the pandemic’s start, we have distributed over 2,000 computers to students, families and community organizations.

If you are in need of a computer, please visit our Programs to learn more.
