America’s Wireless Companies Respond to COVID-19: September 25th Update .
As many schools across America are starting the year virtually due to COVID-19, the wireless industry is stepping in to equip students, parents and teachers with critical supplies and resources. Take a look and see how wireless companies lent a virtual helping hand this week:
- AT&T contributed $100,000 to the Parent Institute for Quality Education to help families and students in California transition to distance learning during COVID-19.
- T-Mobile employees donated to the #ClearTheList movement, helping 100 teachers obtain essential classroom materials and supplies as they prepare to start the school year in the midst of COVID-19.
- Verizon hosted the second “Citizen Verizon Assembly, Education is Not Up for Debate” virtual townhall, where global leaders discussed remote learning, education inequality and the importance of mental health.
- Samsung partnered with the National Environmental Education Foundation to launch a 10-day online challenge for 6th – 8th grade students attending school virtually or in-person to help kids get excited to learn about science and the environment.
- LG launched a video series for students, parents and educators that promotes social and emotional health awareness and helps students cope with the impact of COVID-19.
Now more than ever, wireless is playing a critical role in keeping us connected to our family and friends, our jobs, our schools and our communities, and we are proud of our members and the industry for their tireless efforts in these trying times. We will continue to share our members’ stories here and on the CTIA website.
