Free Geek Twin Cities had an incredible 2018. Firstly, we need to thank our amazing volunteers, without whom FGTC wouldn’t be possible!

|Lbs Recycled||over 60,000lbs|
|Computers saved from the landfill||1,202|
A local YouTube channel by Bill Owen featured Free Geek in its series for building retro PCs. It is a great series to see if you are interested in retro PC gaming.

Free Geek would like to thank a Minneapolis based “This Does Not Compute” Youtube channel for creating a great video about Free Geek history and operations. The video is available at:
The channel is a favorite of a number of Free Geek staff as it covers in depth topics that would be interesting to people who enjoy technology.
Come by and grab a t-shirt, we finally have them back in stock for $12!
After a generous donation of shelving from Ryan Co. during their move downtown, we are taking a bit of time to rearrange and replan our space in the recycling area. Please excuse the mess as the walls get their first coat of paint in years. Thank you to Welna’s Ace Hardware for the great help picking the colors! The plan is expected to take a few weeks but we see this having a great benefit for handling greater numbers of volunteers and material to recycle!
Today is Give to the Max Day, we’re excited to have an introductory video to show you!
Please consider a donation to help us with our mission at our Give to the Max site.
We are happy to announce our store has been moved to a new area of the facility. This means more stock viewable, more stations to test gear before you buy, and fun things called windows, which we hear are nice.
But seriously, no running into the back caverns to find a computer, our entire stock is within reach finally. We’re happy to be able to serve customer’s needs better. This is all part of the plan to keep scaling to meet the community’s need for our mission.
Thanks to Art, Charlie, Eric, Todd, Dan, Karen, and more that pushed hard this past month to get our store moved and running again.
