IT volunteer needed: very short term

The Pangaea Project seeks a volunteer IT person to help us with our computer hardware and software. With two new staff coming on, we need to clean up hard drives, be sure each computer connects to our server through our network and from out of the office, and that all systems are functioning smoothly.
