ASU student working with non-profit to provide computers to low income children | Arizona News

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS5) — ASU student Celina Villa could be spending her free time hanging out with friends. Instead, she’s unloading and organizing dozens of refurbished computers, to be given to low-income families  with kids who don’t have access to technology or the Internet. “Even though these families are in a lower-income status, it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get the same quality education all other students are getting,” said Villa.
