(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.

young people who may be at risk for the future by assisting in the
