AT&T is proud to be part of this great state. We try to get involved and make a difference when needed.
In late March, severe flooding impacted the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. In response, AT&T’s employees immediately joined others in the community to deliver bottled water and food to the Reservation when they were cut off from basic necessities. Our employees took up a collection of supplies in Spearfish and Sioux Falls for those flood victims hardest hit. AT&T also supported the efforts of the Salvation Army, Western Division with a $10,000 contribution for flood relief.
We’re also gearing up for a big summer and fall supporting educational initiatives for South Dakota’s kids. In March, AT&T donated $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire to teach students about how to start and run a business.
Just this week, we donated $5,000 to the Code Bootcamp School for Native American students to attend coding schools. Code Bootcamp teaches kids coding skills by learning to build video games. It’s one of the first steps in readying our youth for the future digital economy.
If we want to have a positive impact on our communities, we’ve got to start with helping our neighbors and empowering our youth. Whether it is an emergency response to a natural disaster, working to enhance education, or delivering trusted technology for South Dakotans, you can count on AT&T.
