Sprint Team members, joined by Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti and Illinois Public School faculty, announced new investments to Illinois Public Schools under the White House initiative, ConnectED. The high-speed LTE broadband service Sprint brings to these schools will help more than 4,200 Illinois students stay connected at-home through a Wi-Fi hotspot. The value of Sprint’s service during the term is estimated at more than $8.09 million.“Without internet access, millions of children, especially minority students living in low-income communities, would be left behind.

Last year, Sprint and Governor Rauner announced the first few Illinois Public Schools to take advantage of the ConnectED initiative, where Sprint provided more than $3 million in free broadband service. This announcement includes additional Illinois Public Schools with a larger investment and a larger number of students impacted. Sprint pledged to provide wireless broadband connectivity for 50,000 low-income K-12 students across the U.S. as part of the White House initiative, ConnectED – a public and private effort to get technology into classrooms and into the hands of teachers and students to help bridge the “digital divide.”

Sprint is proud to provide free broadband service to the following Illinois Public Schools:

  • Leyden High School District 212
  • Hillside School District 93
  • Maine Township High School District 207
  • Township High School District 214
  • Glenbard Township High Schools District #87
  • Herscher CUSD2
  • La Grange District 105
  • Schaumburg Community Consolidated District 54
  • Consolidated High School District 230
  • Wheaton Warrenville CUSD 200
  • Kildeer Countryside CCSD 96
  • East Alton-Wood River SD 14
  • Community High School District 99
  • Huntley Community School District 158
  • Elmhurst CUSD 205
  • Skokie School District 73.5
  • Oak Park & River Forest SD 200

In addition to the ConnectED initiative, Sprint has donated $250,000 to fund an expansion of the Connect Chicago Challenge – citywide effort to make Chicago the most skilled, most connected, most dynamic digital city in the world. The Connect Chicago Challenge will increase digital access through comprehensive programming, outreach and public access in neighborhoods throughout the city.

“Sprint has a long history of supporting initiatives that use innovative technologies, services and devices to enhance educational opportunities,” said Jim Mills, Sprint president of Illinois and Wisconsin. “During this critical time for high school students, Sprint is proud to provide free broadband services so that there are no interruptions in their learning.”

For students who do not have access to the Internet at home, it significantly limits opportunities to complete homework assignments, research next-level learning, and apply for jobs. In the state of Illinois, about 54 percent of the students live in low income households and qualify for free or reduced lunch.

Timberland employees celebrate the season of giving through the company’s Path of Service™ program. More than 100 employees have volunteered at seven events in support of nonprofit organizations in New Hampshire as well as other projects around the world.  Approaching its 25th year, Timberland’s Path of Service™ program provides employees with up to 40 paid hours each year to serve in the community.

“Timberland regularly sees a spike in end-of-year service hours as employees eagerly sign up for projects to make the holidays a little brighter for people in need,” said Atlanta McIlwraith, Timberland’s senior manager of community engagement and communications. “Through the Path of Service™ program, employees are able to use these hours to serve nonprofits they are passionate about.”

Across North America, Europe and Asia, Timberland volunteers celebrate Serv-a-palooza in ways that meet the needs of their local communities.  Some of this year’s Serv-a-palooza project highlights include:

  • In China, volunteers planted trees and engage primary school children in activities that inform and empower them to protect the environment
  • In England, volunteers returned to historic Chirk Castle to clean and restore the park grounds.
  • In Vietnam, volunteers renovated, repaired and repainted a local kindergarten
  • In France, volunteers supported park activities and urban greening projects with local youth to encourage youth engagement in the outdoors
  • In the United States, volunteers in New Hampshire improved grounds and delivered care packages to clients of the Manchester VA Medical Center.

Timberland’s culture and product designs are inspired by the rich New England heritage of the company. Everything they make, every store they open, every aspect of the business has been founded upon the outdoor lifestyle – whether that involves wooded trails or city streets – and a Timberland community that thrives on giving back.  Timberland shoppers who purchase through iGive.com can also give back to their favorite cause with every purchase.

For over a decade now, December has been Toshiba Group CSR Month, a tradition and commitment that continues this year. Toshiba has long been guided by the principles expressed in our corporate motto—Committed to People, Committed to the Future—and CSR Month offers us all an opportunity to reflect on how best to build a management system and Toshiba Group that respect responsibilities to society. But more than that, it provides all of us, wherever we are in Toshiba’s global operations, with an opportunity to get involved in activities that make a direct and real contribution to the community.

Group companies encourage and support voluntary activities and projects year round, but that does not stop them from making a special effort this month. December 5 is International Volunteer Day, a UN-designated event that encourages organizations and individuals to shine a light on their activities. Toshiba Group organizes special events on and around this date that reinforce our long-standing support for volunteerism, and that also seek to involve as many of the Group’s 188,000 employees as possible.

In Japan, the centerpiece event this year is month-long food drive to support local food banks. Other events include hands-on tree-planting and cleaning-up at the Minamisoma Solar Agri Park in Fukushima, an NGO supported by Toshiba, a charity movie showing, with proceeds donated to organizations that support the hearing impaired, and charity concert by the Toshiba Philharmonic Orchestra to improve awareness of food drive.

Other activities around the world include donations of clothes and food in China, where some factories are also encouraging efforts to reduce food wastage, and distribution of food to townships in Africa. Toshiba Group companies in Singapore have already raised funds and initiated a gift-collection drive for a voluntary welfare organization, managed by the Singapore’s Children Society. The beneficiaries were also invited to a trees-decorating activity at the Botanic Gardens, in support of conserving Singapore’s natural heritage. In the US, Toshiba America Group companies are all coordinating programs that focus either on food and clothing donations or the aptly named “Toys for Tots”, benefiting local food banks and shelters in local Toshiba communities.

As ever, a highlight of CSR Month will be the annual CSR Conference, this year on December 13. The centerpiece of the conference is the presentation of the “ASHITA” Awards in recognition of outstanding achievements in CSR activities over the last year. Nominations this year totaled over 1,300, a potent reminder that the voluntary spirit is strong throughout Toshiba, and awards will be presented to 3 companies and one individuals.

CSR management and the community engagement promoted by CSR activities and CSR Month are strongly supported by Toshiba’s top management. In his message to employees worldwide to support the start of CSR Month, Satoshi Tsunakawa, Toshiba’s president and CEO, made the observation that: “Companies are supported by the understanding and trust of stakeholders, and must repay that by developing their corporate activities and contributing to the achievement of a sustainable society.” Through our CSR activities, we can join hands across the world and contribute to a better society and a better understanding of Toshiba.

About Toshiba

Avon Foundation for Women

The Avon Foundation for Women announced the launch of the first multi-disciplinary collaborative of 20 colleges and universities across the country dedicated to addressing gender-based violence on campus. The collaborative brought together representatives from 10 schools from the southeastern US to participate in a two-day program that dialogues around key learnings from across the country to prevent campus assault and sexual violence. As a result, each participating school will create a campus action plan that takes a trauma-based approach and involves students, college administration, campus police and leading consultants on gender-based violence.

The collaborative is an outcome of The National Leadership Institute: Changing the Narrative on Campus Gender-Based Violence presented by Futures Without Violence, a national health and social justice nonprofit, in partnership with the Gender Violence Program at Harvard Law School and the University of Virginia. The National Leadership Institute was conceived and funded by the Avon Foundation for Women building on the success of the Foundation’s global Justice Institute on Gender-Based Violence held around the world.

“The Avon Foundation has been funding bystander initiatives and awareness campaigns around sexual assault for a long time and this National Leadership Institute is breaking new ground to change the way we work together to address gender-based violence,” said Christine Jaworsky, Avon Foundation Program Director. “We’ve just spent two days looking at best practices and solutions to shift campus culture away from victim blaming to a more trauma-based perspective; now the real work begins.”

Through a $200,000 grant from the Avon Foundation, participating schools will develop and implement action plans to prevent and respond to sexual assault at their respective institutions. Futures Without Violence and the extensive faculty of the National Leadership Institute will work closely with the schools to integrate a multi-disciplinary approach to ending gender-based violence on school campuses. This will include webinars with experts, ongoing consultations, toolkits and additional online resources to advance the learning collaborative.

“All of the schools are deeply committed to proactively changing the way gender-based violence is addressed on campus,” said Lonna Davis of Futures Without Violence. “We are particularly appreciative of Morehouse College stepping up to host the National Leadership Institute, the start of a groundbreaking initiative to affect all colleges and universities across the country. The Institute is part of a long-term investment to shift the narrative and introduce a primary prevention and trauma-focused approach that engages the entire school community.”

Futures Without Violence received a grant from the Avon Foundation for Women to research, design and implement the National Leadership Institute curriculum in collaboration with Harvard Law School’s Gender Violence Program and the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education with additional funding from the Jefferson Trust and private donors Stephen and Carolyn McCandless.

“Through legal advocacy grounded in support for survivors and an ethos of care, the Gender Violence Program and Futures Without Violence have been on the forefront of the national effort to use Title IX to prevent and address campus sexual assault,” said Diane L. Rosenfeld, the founding Director of the Gender Violence Program at Harvard Law School and a Lecturer on Law. “Now, we are making an important step forward with the support and leadership of the Avon Foundation.”

The National Leadership Institute focuses on four major areas: 1) fundamentals of gender-based violence and trauma, 2) campus cultures and climate, 3) prevention and education, and 4) response, policy, and adjudication. Developed in consultation with national experts and institutional representatives from schools across the country, the curriculum provides colleges and universities the opportunity to learn best practices in the prevention, response and resolution of sexual violence, and the tools needed to implement action plans. Each school’s action plan will address prevention education; accommodations, support and safety services; retaliation; and investigations, adjudications and resolutions.

The University of Virginia served as one of the founding institutions working with Futures Without Violence and Harvard Law School to host the pilot of the Leadership Institute. “We are grateful to the Jefferson Trust for providing funding for the University of Virginia to serve as a partner on the development and implementation of this program and to the Avon Foundation for the historic creation of the National Leadership Institute to expand our community of higher education institutions working to end gender-based violence,” said Catherine Spears, Assistant Vice President of Equal opportunity at the University of Virginia.

The first National Leadership Institute was held October 25 – 26, 2016 in Boston with:

  1. Brandeis University
  2. Dean College
  3. Eastern Nazarene College
  4. Emerson College
  5. Lasell College
  6. Lesley University
  7. Providence College
  8. Stonehill College
  9. University of Massachusetts, Lowell
  10. Wheaton College

Scholastic Books will help more than 33,000 students from schools across six states and the Dominican Republic choose and own 10 new children’s books for free. This venture is made possible by My Very Own Library (MVOL), an international initiative that encourages literacy by offering students in need an opportunity to own their own books. MVOL works in collaboration with Scholastic Book Fairs so kids can choose their own books at a fun school book fair, build home libraries and develop a love of reading.

  • 2,433 low-income students in 7 public schools in Kansas City, KS with the support of United Way of Greater Kansas City giving away over 24,330 books

Also included in the MVOL program are school visits by award-winning children’s book authors. During author visits, more than 100 copies of each author’s book are personally autographed and given to participating students. Additionally, each school also receives $1,000 in grant funding to host three family literacy events that coincide with each book fair event.

Founded in 2011 by the late Anne Feeley (1954-2012), My Very Own Library was first implemented in Newark, NJ, and has expanded year after year. To date, My Very Own Library has provided more than 1.2 million books to students in Newark, NJ; Richmond, CA; Chicago, IL; Wilmington, DE; Milwaukee, WI; and the Dominican Republic. By summer 2017, My Very Own Library will have provided nearly 1.6 million books to students across all seven locations it will serve.
