AT&T employees from Broward County retail locations are “mobilizing” to support local first responders and frontline heroes during the health crisis.
Last week, a group delivered baskets of fruit, chips, snacks, cookies, juice, and other sweet treats, along with “thank you” signs, to Coral Springs-Parkland Fire and Police departments to help “fill their fridge.”
“These have been challenging times for everyone, but especially for first responders who are amid the COVID-19 pandemic,” explained Dan Delaflor, area retail sales manager for several Broward County AT&T stores, including the Coral Springs location on University Drive.
“The food baskets were a way for my team to show our local frontline heroes that we recognize the sacrifice they’re making and appreciate all they are doing.”
Similar projects have been launched across South Florida. In Miami, AT&T store employees have dropped off hundreds of goody bags to hospitals and delivered 3,000 meals to Jackson Memorial’s three campuses and the Miami Veterans Administration Hospital in conjunction with the Miami Marlins Foundation.
AT&T is also supporting physicians and nurses nationwide with three months of free wireless service on the FirstNet network, which prioritizes first responder calls and data for public safety communications. For more information, visit the FirstNet website here.
