Clear your clutter and help us give back to the Madison community! This year, SQL Saturday Madison (http://sqlsaturday.com/287/eventhome.aspx) is holding a USB Drive Drive for Porchlight, Inc (http://www.porchlightinc.org/ ).  

Bring your spare USB drive (functional please!) to the event and drop them off at the registration desk – easy peasy! Porchlight, Inc. will donate these drives to homeless and disadvantaged people in the community so they have a place to store important content like resumes, pictures, and legal documents while they get back on their feet. 

Special thanks to +Eric Selje for coordinating this donation!
