Comcast makes a donation to Rockford boys and girls clubs to help bridge the digital divide

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – Comcast today donates $ 10,000 plus 100 laptops to support STEM programs alongside Rockford boys and girls clubs.

Comcast’s Rockford stop is part of the Illinois Digital Equity Tour, which consists of a week-long tour of cities across the state that promotes the importance of digital equity. The money, and especially the laptops, will connect more than 76,000 low-income Rockford residents to the Internet at affordable costs.

“A very exciting day not only for the Boys and Girls Club, but for the entire community. This generous gift of Comcast Chromebooks starting at $ 10,000 will have an impact not just on the kids, but on 100 families, ”said Chip Stoner, president of Boys and Girls Club.
