About

Dorm Geeks is a company that was started by a mentor, Keon Merriett, and his two little brothers, Nathaniel Strange and Sheredian Lawrence. The idea was to start a business that could include the two young men, and give them a start at being entrepreneurs.

At the age of 21, Keon was given the same opportunity of entrepreneurship by his mentor, and opened his own pizza restaurant. When he saw this opportunity, Keon wanted to do the same and pay it forward. The Idea for Dorm Geeks came while surfing through social media. We saw inspiration on a friend’s social media page, and sparked the concept of Dorm Geeks.

Dorm Geeks allows you to get the basic necessities needed for a college dorm without having to spend hours in a store. It also allows you to show your college student how much you care, by sending them a monthly care package. With the click of a mouse, you can have your very own geek box delivered to your home or dorm.

Let’s “Get Geeked” together

Geek Gives Back

Helping our community.

Geek Gives Back is our effort as a small business to pay it forward to rising college students. For every 10 Geek Boxes and Care Packages sold, Dorm Geeks will donate a Geek Box and Care Package to a local Boys & Girls Club. These boxes will be given to a rising college student in their club, or one that has already entered college.

These Boys & Girls Clubs include; The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Atlanta, and The Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Two of our team members, Nathaniel and Sheredian, are both Boys & Girls Club Alumni, and Keon is a former Club director. We saw it fitting to give back to an organization that gave so much to us.

So when you purchase your Geek Box, you can feel good in knowing you have helped someone who otherwise may not have the funds to purchase their dorm needs.

Be a caring Geek, Be a thoughtful Geek, and most of all, be a Dorm Geek. “Get Geeked”
