Volunteering

Our volunteers are a very important part of the CFC program. Volunteers can earn a Laptop or Desktop computer system by volunteering with us for 50 hours. Come in at your convenience during business hours, Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm. Each volunteer is given a sign-in sheet to log hours and there are no requirements regarding time to volunteer.

When stock is ready, we’ll show you how to identify and isolate components needed for recycling. One doesn’t need prior experience; our environment offers a unique opportunity to learn about computers with assistance from our helpful staff.

There are a few simple requirements which must be met prior to volunteering. You must be able to physically handle large and heavy desktop units, be considerate to others and wear closed-toed shoes. We’ll supply the tools for dismantling the electronics. Non-English speakers are welcome. You’re welcome to use our breakroom and store any food from home. We don’t supply food.

At the end of 50 hours, CFC staff will help you select a computer system valued at $250. Your choice of a desktop or laptop will be fully loaded with Windows 10 Pro and Microsoft Office 2010. Almost anyone can volunteer; we have had other volunteers earn a computer to be able to give it free to a low-income family or program that would benefit.

Many students will be required to volunteer their time for specific courses. We will provide them with a certificate of completion after they have volunteered for their assigned hours. CFC can also provide Letters of Recommendation or Letters of Support for college or job applicants. Volunteering for non-profits is a great reference.

If you have any questions, contact the all the volunteer coordinator (Adrian) at 530-895-4175 Ext 2 during weekdays 9AM to 5PM.
