BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We are fans of AT&T’s continued work in the community helping children and families — here is another example in this media advisory:
AT&T recently recognized 12 graduating foster care students, including two in Boca Raton, with laptops. The students are served by ChildNet Palm Beach County, a nonprofit is dedicated to protecting abused, neglected, and abandoned youth. The laptops were presented to the students during a graduation celebration at the West Palm Beach ChildNet office.
Hope for a brighter future is what drives young adults served by ChildNet. They students understand education is crucial for a strong future, and AT&T agrees.
“It was terrific to be part of the graduation at ChildNet,” said Karl Blanco, director of sales for AT&T in South Florida. “These students faced challenges and overcame them. It was nice to see that they are getting ready to take the next steps in their lives, in their education or in their career. We wish them well.”
