August 3, 2016

Sprint gives back through

Sprint believes that connectively is critical to learning and career advancement. They recently announced a donation of approximately $1 million in devices and service to for 500 City of Oakland, CA young adults as part of the Sprint for ConnectED program, and partnership with My Brother’s Keeper Alliance (MBKA) — a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving life outcomes for boys and men of color.

“In this increasingly digital world, at Sprint we believe that connectivity can play a critical role in transforming young people’s lives to achieve higher levels of education and better job opportunities,” said Suehyun Johan Chung, Sprint’s Northern California president. “We’re honored to be part of this tremendous summit and help 500 Bay Area young adults to complete their online homework to get better grades, apply for jobs or school opportunities that are only available online, and have access to the same online resources as their connected counterparts.”

This is just one way that Sprint gives back to the community. Purchases made through iGive at Sprint online can support your favorite cause.
