Giving Thanks for Community Kiosks

Giving Thanks for Community Kiosk Services

November 20, 2018

‘Tis the season to be grateful! Here at Advanced Kiosks, we are giving thanks for all our clients who use automated kiosks to lend a helping hand and serve their communities. Our full line of interactive kiosks are secure, durable and easy for anyone to use anywhere. That’s why community kiosk projects are perfect for community outreach of all kinds. Here are just a few ways computer kiosks are making our world a better place:

Community Service

Cor Unum Dining KioskAutomated kiosks are often used to organize and manage the legions of people across our country who donate their time to worthy causes. They can do background checks, schedule volunteers, and get the word out about important news and events. Fifty to 75 people use the Cor Unum Meal Center volunteer kiosk every day to check in and out of their volunteer shifts!

But self-service kiosks don’t just make community service possible, they also provide it. In the run-up to our recent midterm elections, voter registration kiosks popped up all over the nation. In Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Public Library worked with the Election Commission and Mayor’s Office to put voter registration kiosks in every library branch. The goal was to register all eligible residents to vote, particularly those without access to reliable internet service.

Community Education

Our automated kiosks are secure and anonymous. These kiosks are used to administer online self-assessments that screen for anxiety, depression, PTSD, eating disorders and addiction. They are conveniently located on college campuses, in workplaces, public spaces and even supermarkets. The SMH kiosk program strives to reduce stigma and connect people with the resources they need.

In Texas, the Galveston Bay Estuary and Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority are using kiosks for public education on water quality and conservation. Up in Michigan, the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community started out using their kiosks to notify the public of registered sex offenders. Now they also provide public internet access to vital tribal resources and health care.

Community Gratitude

November is National Gratitude Month. It’s also when we thank our veterans for all they’ve done for us. Advanced Kiosks is proud and grateful to play a small role in honoring those who paid the ultimate price for our nation. Our automated kiosks help loved ones find and remember fallen heroes laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery and in Montana’s Sunset Hills Cemetery at Bozeman’s Vietnam War Memorial.

Every community has something to be grateful for. As we enter the season of giving, many people want to show their gratitude through charitable donations. Giving kiosks are a great way to do that. They are secure, private and flexible so donors can give exactly how and what they want to give.
