Tech training during the pandemic; PPE; and virtual game time! Stay Connected. Stay Safe. Have Fun!
During this pandemic, Tech Pals has shifted gears away from workshops and presentations to embrace social distancing. We are now offering help over the phone, over video chat or zoom. We are training individuals to use technology to get groceries delivered, access digital books online using a library card, and video chat to keep in touch with loved ones while social distancing.
For more information about how to stay safe and what to do if you are sick, please visit the Center for Disease Control website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html or by clicking the link below.

As a fundraiser and shift during the pandemic in effort to keep everyone safe, we purchased two 3D printers. We used these printers to print face shields and ear protectors. They are available for sale, for free, and for donations. For more information on this click the button below or contact us by clicking HERE.
Free. Regularly $10 on Amazon. Limit 2 per person. Get masks loops off or your ears and your hearing aids. To request your free ear protectors, email us and tell us how you found out about us, and tell others about us.
Face shields are available for sale. For every three sold, one is donated. Shields have been donated to the grocery stores, the sheriffs, volunteers with the homeless, and food service deli workers. Iowa doctors have found face shields to be more protective than simple cloth masks.
Your generous donation will fund our mission to enable all generations to embrace technology regardless of ability to pay (Photo Taken by Tech Pals November 2019)
