CHICO, Calif. - A generous man is offering his tech skills to help Camp Fire survivors replace computers that were destroyed on November 8.
Ryan Boyette works for Build.com. He had several co-workers who lost their computers during the fire. He decided to build them new ones, and has been doing that since a few weeks after the fire.
Now that he has replaced nearly all of his co-workers' computers, he wants to help more people who lost their computers from the fire.
He has built and distributed more than 15 PC's so far. Boyette told Action News Now that it takes from one to two hours to build a computer, and then it can take another hour to add software and updates.
Boyette has received donations from several tech companies and is requesting more.
Most of the donations have come from requests made on online group forums and from his coworkers and friends. NZXT has donated 20 computer cases and coolers so far. Boyette said they have been extremely generous.
If you were impacted by the Camp Fire or would like to assist in Boyette's endeavor, please send an inquiry to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
