BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) – Frontier Communications has chosen The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Brazos Valley in Bryan as the first community location to benefit from a one-of-a-kind social impact program called Broadband for Good.
This means Frontier will donate broadband connectivity and computing equipment to support the Boys & Girls Club’s mission to connect today’s youth to tomorrow’s opportunities.
Boys & Girls Club CEO Rhonda Watson joined The Three to talk about the impact this contribution will have on children.
“Having this broadband and fiber optic connectivity will ensure that we use the internet. There will be a stronger connection, allowing us to be more productive. Kids not only use it for tutoring, but they also use it for games and a whole host of other things,” Watson said.
Watson also expressed hope that Broadband for Good will expand to other Boys and Girls Clubs across the country. “The Boys & Girls Club of the Brazos Valley is the first to benefit from this groundbreaking opportunity. I hope to facilitate Frontier’s expansion into rural and metropolitan communities across the country,” she said.
With the opening of the new Boys & Girls Club facility in Bryan, Watson says they have experienced exponential growth. “We’re excited about the future and we’re just getting started,” Watson said.
