On July 20th at our Easterseals Windsor location, Representatives of Easterseals Capital Region & Eastern CT were joined by State Senator Douglas McCrory, State Representative Maryam Khan and representatives of corporate partner Comcast to announce two Comcast grants totaling $25K. These grants support digital training and resources for a program at Easterseals Veterans Rally Point and a kitchen renovation at our Windsor facility. Additionally, in support of our shared mission of closing the digital divide, Easterseals is hosting a valuable community event “Internet Basics.” A team of employees from, Comcast/NBC Universal, including the My Abilities Employee Resource Group, trained the people Easterseals serves in basic internet applications and safety. This community event trained participants in Staying Connected, Using Online Information Resources & Cyber-Safety. Participants learned how to safely interact with friends and family, attend telehealth appointments, share photos, search for information and shop online. Comcast also supplied much needed new devices to Easterseals for ongoing program use, and a few were available for use during this training session.
