CarePoint Health has donated 10 laptops for students in the middle-school TRUE Mentors program with a presentation at the Hoboken Dual Language Charter School.

TRUE Mentors is a Hoboken nonprofit offering a one-to-one mentoring program which matches children aged 7 to 17 with adult community leaders.

Among the students who will benefit the most from the 10 Google Chromebooks are those in TRUE Mentors’ Teen Internship Program, according to TRUE Mentors Executive Director Katie Eades.

Between 15 to 20 students go through the teen internship program each year and can benefit from the CarePoint Health laptop donations. College applications and job searches will be among the computers’ uses.

Eades said her group partners with Mission 50, a local business center. 

Hoboken University Medical Center Chief Operating Officer Ann Logan said she was gratified that the hospital could assist the youth by making the donations.

CarePoint is Hudson County’s local health care provider, offering a full continuum of care to residents. This comprehensive program often begins with the response of McCabe Ambulance, a CarePoint partner. It continues with treatment from Bayonne Medical Center, Christ Hospital, and Hoboken University Medical Center emergency departments, diagnostic departments, and inpatient and outpatient services.
