View Full Version : Free IT Athens Build Party Road Trip

July 14th, 2009, 08:53 AM
A community events sponsored by Atlanta Linux Enthusiasts, the Ubuntu Georgia LoCp, and Free IT Athens.

This volunteer event will be taking place on Saturday,
July 18th, 2009 from 10:30am to ~7:30pm. The plan is
to travel as a group to the Free IT facilities in Athens,
Georgia and spend the afternoon building, repairing,
assembling and installing Linux computer systems
that will be donated to regional educational institutions,
non profit groups and community members in need.

To facilitate delivery of donated equipment and car
pooling, the Road Trip caravan to Free IT Athens will
congregate at the Fry’s parking lot (S.W. corner) near
I-85 and Pleasant Hill road, adjacent to the Gwinnett
Place Mall. Volunteers should arrive between 10:00am
and 10:30am as we hope to depart by 10:45am and
arrive at Free IT in Athens by about Noon. Plans are
to work at Free IT until about 6:00pm, then drive out
to arrive back at Frys by 7:30pm.

NOTE: Additional equipment donations will be
accepted in the Frys parking lot (S.W. corner) from
10:00am until departure time. Please see the FreeIT
donations page for specifics.

Volunteers can bring their own lunch or participate in
a group lunch order; collections will be taken and food
ordered upon arrival at Free IT Athens. Donations of frosty beverages for the afternoon will also be most welcome.

Dinner and post-road-trip frivolities at an establishment
in the vicinity of Gwinnett Mall may ensue as participating
volunteers are motivated.

All volunteers and participants are, of course, welcome
to make their own travel arrangements to Free IT Athens
as they see fit, though we request that you still RSVP to
help us better coordinate the event effort.
