Comcast announces Olympian Jackie Joyner-Kersee will step into the role of spokeswoman for its Internet Essentials Program

The Electronic Access Foundation is excited to see the relentless efforts made by organizations like Comcast to end the Digital Divide by providing low-cost internet access and increasing digital literacy to low-income families.

Comcast has announced that Jackie Joyner-Kersee who is a Six-time U.S. Olympic medalist, is joining Comcast as a spokeswoman for their “Internet Essentials Program” We are excited to see that impact that she will have with this initiative!

The Electronic Access Foundation is positioned to help close this Digital Divide by supplying the computer equipment to the low-income families. We accomplish this through a process of donations of viable computer equipment that businesses do not need. Through our process of refurbishing and remarketing of the equipment, we can restore the equipment to good use for low-income families as part of the HUD’s ConnectHome program.

We encourage New Jersey, New York and Eastern Pennsylvania corporations and businesses to contact us regarding the donation of viable computer equipment. Let’s all work together with Comcast and the HUD’s ConnectHome program to close the gap of the Digital Divide and increase digital literacy for low-income families.
