Inmar and Allegacy Tech Teams Join Forces to Close the Digital Divide through Community Outreach

On October 20, residents of Winston-Salem will again be leaving two community centers with their laptops, PCs, tablets and cell phones free of viruses, running faster — and with a better understanding of how they can use their devices to assist their daily lives — at no cost to them.

Inmar's next Community Tech Night will be held from 6:00 p.m. — 8:00 p.m., Thursday, October 20, at both the 14th Street and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Centers in Winston-Salem. No appointment is necessary and assistance is free. Residents receive one-on-one attention for as long as needed to resolve their technology challenge and learn more about their device.

Anyone needing help with a technology/smartphone/tablet/desktop computer problem, or wanting to learn more about using them, is invited to attend. A Chromebook notebook computer will also be given away at each location.

Inmar began its Community Tech Night program in 2015, in conjunction with WinstonNet, a community technology nonprofit, to offer free technology support to members of the community. Due to the program's popularity with residents, and the technology pros who volunteer, Allegacy Federal Credit Union's Technology team has joined with Inmar to expand the program's reach in Winston-Salem.

Quality of life is increasingly influenced by one's access to and ability to use technology — job, school, healthcare, finances, entertainment - there are few areas that do not require some level of proficiency. But, not everyone has access to tech support when they have questions or need help with anything from troubleshooting problems with a personal computer or mobile device to learning ways in which technology can help them most every day. Inmar CTO Greg Kerr began Community Tech Night to help fill the void.
