A laptop for Mateo a science and technology high school student

Posted Oct 11, 2018
Since Mateo attends a science and technology school, they use laptops every day. Mateo has been getting by, by going to the library but the restricting hours are starting to hurt his access to homework and his studies. Unfortunately, the school does not have extra laptops to lend students. Mateo has requested help in the form of a laptop so he can keep up with his studies. He has never asked his worker for help before, and would be so grateful to receive this wish!

Mateo is 16 years old and lives in Philadelphia, PA

Mateo attends a science and technology charter school where he also plays football and runs track. He's a hardworking student who loves exceeding in school. Mateo has spent much of his life in and out of care but he is hopeful that his latest home may become permanent. He's the oldest child in care and he has taken on a big brother role to his six siblings. He puts his sibling's needs over his own on a constant basis.
