Carla Morales technical experience is invaluable. She rebuilds at least three to four computer systems a week and donates them to nonprofit educational facilities, senior citizens, day care centers, low income families, low income college students and churches throughout the state of Colorado. She puts in at least 40 hours a week at Sun with her present position of Regulatory Engineer in the Product Safety Engineering Group and then donates 20-30 hours a week to rebuilding computers by picking up donations of parts from individuals, corporations, etc and she uses what she can to rebuild.

On average, she has donated at least 100 systems a year for the last 15 years to families in need. She has also taught a computer technician class for the last 4-1/2 years at the Mi Casa Resource Center for Women in Denver and a class at Casa De La Esperanza in Longmont. Finally, Carla teaches individuals how to use computers when she installs them in their homes and performs maintenance on these systems as needed.

Carla has also worked with the former StorageTek Latino group, Exito for the past seven years with many events and sponsored activities. Carla’s endless drive to volunteer for the various causes she supports has produced an astonishing number of volunteer hours, 1,250, so far this fiscal year.
