Altice USA, parent company of Suddenlink, donated over $12,500 worth of iPads to the Boys & Girls Club of the Tar River Region to increase access to virtual classroom opportunities, connectivity, and online curriculum for students.
Said Bob Lillie, regional vice president at Altice: “Suddenlink is proud to support the communities where we live, work and serve and the Boys and Girls Club of the Tar River Region, plays a critical role in helping to develop future innovators.”
Boys & Girls Club of the Tar River Region Chief Executive Officer Ron Green said: “We take pride in helping to develop the future of our communities. If we truly want the Twin Counties to be better tomorrow than it is today; then investments like this one from Suddenlink is the key. Helping us to shrink the digital divide and connect young people to a world much bigger than their back yard is one of the most important things Suddenlink has done for young people in Nash and Edgecombe Counties.”
Altice USA is committed to ensuring broadband access for all and understands that now, more than ever, having the right tools to remain connected is just as critical as access itself.
The donations were received at a September 22, 2021 special presentation at the Lucy Ann Boddie Brewer Clubhouse in Rocky Mount, NC.
This donation is part of Altice USA’s $1 Million COVID-19 response initiative to support local communities as they recover from the impact of the pandemic.
