CarePoint Health’s Hoboken University Medical Center donated 10 laptops for students in the TRUE Mentors program after a presentation at the Hoboken Dual Language Charter School last week.

TRUE Mentors is a Hoboken non-profit that offers a one-to- one mentoring program, matching 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.

Eades also said her group partners with Mission 50, a Hoboken 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.”
