Our warehouse is located deep inside the Construction Junction building at 214 North Lexington Street. You must enter near the corner of N. Lexington and Thomas Streets via a large garage door. When you arrive, please call 412-444-8816, and a staff member will open the garage door to let you in.

A photo of our entrance and more details can be found at:  http://www.computerreach.org/get-involved/

If you drive your car here:

Construction Junction requires our volunteers NOT to park in their retail sales lot inside the gates.

You must park out on Meade and N. Lexington Streets outside the gated retail area.

We recommend the free parking on Meade,  N. Lexington and Thomas Streets.  Please obey any "residents only" parking signs. The city will ticket you!

For your safety we require that you wear closed toe shoes - no sandals or flip-flops.  We ask that you dress warmly in the winter months in layers of clothing you can shed/add with an expected variable temperature of 60-65 degrees in our large 3,000 square foot volunteer space that features 20 ft high ceilings.

In the summer months t-shirts and short pants are fine. But again, we require that you wear closed toe shoes. No sandals or flip-flops.

We usually take a lunch break around noon.  Some people bring lunch; some walk to nearby restaurants. And if it is cold/snowing/raining we may order take-out pizza for those who choose to stay in (you will need $5 to help pay for lunch).  It’s your choice to stay in or go out. We do have complimentary refreshments for our volunteers.

Our volunteer workdays days are 9:30AM - 3:30PM but we find many people come and go at various times. We are glad to have you come and serve for any length of time.  You will be greeted and the time you serve will be recorded by our team.  If you require a letter for your school or business to verify your community service hours, we ask that you keep a time card for verification of entry and exit times on each volunteer day. Please just let us know your needs when you arrive and we can provide a time card for you.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions prior to your visit. We'll have a quick orientation for you when you arrive--along with complimentary refreshments.

Thank you again for planning to spend your time at Computer Reach ... and WELCOME!
