Comcast gifted the McQueen family with a new television and enrolled them into the Internet Essentials broadband program. In addition, Comcast presented 25 neighborhood families with Internet Essentials gift bags, each including a $20 Meijer gift card for the holidays. The company also will be working with Habitat for Humanity and the Morningside Commons Neighborhood Association to ensure all eligible residents are able to take advantage of Internet Essentials. The Internet Essentials program actively addresses the three primary barriers to broadband use as identified by the Pew Center: a lack of understanding, the cost of a computer, and the cost of the service.
WJLB, in addition to providing entertainment at the community celebration, gave away a television and contributed groceries and a Meijer gift card to the McQueen family. Dell helped expand the project by delivering 26 laptop PCs, one to the McQueens and other 25 to Morningside Commons households. Detroit florists Blumz…by JRDesigns contributed a beautiful Christmas tree and holiday décor and gifts. Additional housewares, supplies and gifts were provided by Pastor John H. Sheard of the Greater Mitchell Church of God and Christ through the Michigan Chronicle Praise Connect Detroit network.
