JACKSONVILLE, FLA – July 22 2014 – A local nonprofit organization is better equipped to train its members and volunteers after a donation from Comcast. The Girl Scouts of the Gateway Council received ten netbook computers and free Comcast services, including high speed internet and cable television.
“We’ve been serving girls in Northeast Florida since the early 1920’s. Technology has changed a bit over the decades. The generous gift of high speed internet access and ten Acer Netbooks from Comcast will enable the Girl Scouts of the Gateway Council to train girls and adult volunteers, “ said the Girl Scouts of Gateway Council CEO Mary Anne Jacobs. “Not all of our Girl Scouts and adult volunteers have access to high-speed internet. Almost everything we do is moving into a robust digital environment. Comcast’s donation will provide Girl Scouts access to the information girls need to be ready for college and a globally competitive workplace.”
“Comcast is proud to support the great work of the members and volunteers of the Girl Scouts of the Gateway Council through this donation,” said Bill Ferry, Comcast North Florida Senior Director, Government and Regulatory Affairs & Community Investment. “Comcast is committed to giving back to organizations like the Girl Scouts in all of the communities we serve.”
