Know a kid who needs a laptop? Delaware Valley nonprofit TeamChildren wants to help them out.

Founder Robert Toporek said the organization has distributed over 16,000 refurbished computers, including desktops and laptops, in its more than 20 years of work in the Philadelphia area.

The year-round project mainly distributes to families, seniors, schools and other nonprofits in the city for a low cost per computer; expect to pay between $65 and $225, depending on the model. Computers also come loaded with Windows 10 and $500-worth of learning programs.

Those interested in receiving a computer can apply by mailing TeamChildren a letter about how owning one would make a difference in their lives as well as a check for the cost of whichever model they choose. Recipients are also asked to volunteer with the org for one hour.

The catch for Philly-based applicants: You’ll also need to pick up your new hardware at TeamChildren’s HQ in Audubon.

Computers are donated by local companies such as SEI, Lockheed Martin and Wawa as well as individuals — and the org is always seeking more donations, Toporek said.
