This back-to-school season, our Internet Essentials team is busy attending events throughout the City and region to help spread awareness of the program so more families can cross the digital divide and bring the power of the Internet into their homes.
In Philadelphia, Comcast’s Kathleen Sullivan and Sharon Powell are working closely with City Council members in each district to attend events organized for local constituents. Most recently, we hit the stage at Curtis Jones’ Block Captains Boot Camp & District Festival on August 15th, met with hundreds of attendees at the Nicetown Community Festival during the first weekend of August, and, of course, raffled laptops and more at the School District of Philadelphia’s tremendous E! Day. It was an amazing event filled with resources and giveaways to help families get ready for the return to school.
Look for us at these events over the coming weeks:
Jannie Blackwell’s Echoes of Africa celebration, August 22
Mercy Vocational High School Back to School Barbecue, August 31
