Important Information About Kramden Operations:

We are happy to announce that 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 again 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 1,500 computers to students, families and community organizations.

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

Earlier this year, the Cannon Foundation provided Kramden funding to purchase a box truck. Since that time, we have been able to pick up, refurbish, and deliver hundreds of computers across the state.

Today thanks to our friends at A Better Image Printing, our truck is now outfitted with some great new magnets. Next step, vinyl!
