Empower Up, Clark County's local computer education and reuse non-profit has expanded hours to meet the growing demand for low-cost reused electronics.
Starting on Sept. 1, the operating hours for the Donation Center & Thrift Store were extended for an extra hour every day. The new hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
We were always turning folks away at 5 p.m. By being open an extra hour each day, we hope that people that are working during the week will be better able to take advantage of our low prices.
Empower Up provides free education resources to those in need gain access to technology and the Internet.
Free computer classes are available to the public. Each month, we host PC and Mac clinics that offer free help for computer problems to the public.
Empower Up also provides free public Internet access terminals from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons.
We provide free technical training for volunteers interested in learning how to repair and refurbish computers and electronics.
Empower Up accepts both working and non-working computers and other consumer electronics from the public for reuse and recycling. A tax deductible receipt is provided.
Please call 360-735-0888 during business hours to sign-up for classes or get further information by going to www.empowerupnow.org. Participants must be pre-registered to attend classes.
