Meet-a-Geek

Here at FreeGeek Chicago we love our volunteers. They are the reason we are still operating and their dedication makes our lives a lot easier. With that in mind, we have created a segment on our website we like to call Meet-a-Volunteer. In this segment we will feature one of our volunteers every month. We hope you get to know them as we have.
