Lee from Bronx, NY

I work hard to provide for my family. Help me buy my daughter a laptop for school!

I work as a scrap metal collector. I was recently detained by ICE and spent months away from home; my family and I are grateful for any help.

My need and situation

I am a 30 year old scrap metal collector employee. I have been a scrap metal employee for approximately 4 years. I collect scrap metal and then sell it for a profit.

My goal is to continue to work as a scrap metal employee until my immigration status changes. Thereafter, I would like to enroll in school to further my education.

Recently, I was detained by ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and spent approximately five months away from my family. Due to being detained, my wife was forced to cease bonding with our infant and assist with helping to return me to my family. I was grateful to be returned to my family and resume my employment. My daughter will be entering a new school year and is in need of a laptop to help her complete school assignments.

Meeting this need will help me because it will ease the financial burden of having to obtain the laptop with my limited funds.

We have worked on identifying positive individuals in his life, listing ways to become successful and now I want to help him obtain a laptop for his daughter in order to ensure her success in her upcoming school year. He has worked diligently to provide for his family and would like to ensure the success of his daughter. Lee has been clear about the goals for his family and it would be great to see him receive this help for his daughter.
