We can’t get together in person as we have in past years to support St. John Center in its effort to offer the resources needed … finding housing, shelter and social services … so I am one of many hosting an on-line fundraiser to support St. John Center’s annual fund raising event, Raisin’ the Rent.
I have been supporting St. John Center for over 10 years, providing IT Services, along with three others. Our mission is to make sure the counselors and staff have technical services to efficiently do their jobs of serving the homeless clients.Functional PC’s, Laptops, Printers, Desk Phones, Cell Phones, Internet access, WiFi access, Email, resetting forgotten passwords, assistance with the inevitable questions that arise in the technical world are all part of our gig.
Please join me in supporting the mission!
St John Center does more than serve hot coffee!
