Equipment to Serve Chapter’s Youth Employment, Leadership and Homework Assistance Programs

(HEMPSTEAD, NY) – One Hundred Black Men of Long Island, Inc. recently received a donation of Hewlett Packard laptop computers from Comp4Kids, a local charitable organization that provides refurbished computers to Long Island youth.

“All children should have access to a computer, to link to the World Wide Web and discover the many opportunities online that can enrich their lives through education,” said Phil Andrews, OHBMLI President. “This gracious donation of laptops from Comp4Kids will make that possible for the many Long Island youth that we mentor.”

Andrews said the Chapter will use the laptops as part of its developing youth employment, leadership and homework assistance programs to be implemented this fall.

Comp4Kids, a Long Island-based IRS recognized 501(c) (3) charity, collects and refurbishes used computer equipment. The organization distributes computers for free to low income families across Long Island, NYC, and lower Westchester. Comp4Kids works with numerous school districts, public libraries, pre-schools, after school programs, special education schools and other charitable organizations which service at-risk children, families, and young adults. Comp4Kids also provides the training necessary to implement technology into their daily lives.

The primary focus of 100 Black Men of Long Island Inc. is to prepare young people who may be at risk for the future by assisting in the enhancement of their academic skills and by increasing their educational opportunities. The programs that directly address this focus are: Mentoring, Scholarship, Achievement Awards, African-American History Bowl, Job Training, and Health & Wellness.
