As small business owners and communities across the country continue to face uncertainty amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the wireless industry stands committed to keeping American’s connected to the resources needed most during these challenging times. Take a look at some of the ways wireless companies lent a virtual hand this week:
- Verizon committed $10 million in grant funding and will launch a customized multi-week training program for small business owners and entrepreneurs, offering tools, technology and resources to help aid in the survival and recovery of small businesses during the pandemic and beyond.
- AT&T continues to work with Connected Nation to close the homework gap and provide online resources that promote success in the virtual classroom and give teachers the support they need.
