Milwaukee Bucks donate 20 laptops to local college students
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --- The Milwaukee Bucks and corporate partner Heartland Business Systems (HBS) have worked together to donate 20 brand new HP laptops to local college students from All-In-Milwaukee.
Officials say the laptops were delivered in time for end-of-semester finals in December and will be used by the students throughout their college careers.
According to a news release, All-In-Milwaukee is a college completion program that provides financial aid, advising, program and career support to high-potential, limited-income, diverse Milwaukee students to complete college and transform the Milwaukee community.
“HBS believes every student should have an equal opportunity to succeed in college,” said HBS CEO Peter Helander. “With the pandemic forcing students to take their classes remotely, we realize that some limited-income students might not have access to the devices they need to study or take their final exams. HBS is happy to offer these laptops to All-in Milwaukee and the college students at Alverno, Marquette, UW-Madison, and UW-Milwaukee. We hope these laptops will give the students what they need to succeed virtually.”
