AUGUSTA, Ga. – AT&T and Human I-T provided the Alliance for Fort Eisenhower with 100 refurbished laptops today to distribute to Fort Eisenhower families. The computers, funded by an AT&T contribution, were given to families at Fort Eisenhower to help them fully participate in today’s digital world.

Established in 2003, the Alliance for Fort Eisenhower’s mission is to promote, coordinate and advocate for the Fort Eisenhower Cyber District to stimulate investment in cyber growth and capitalize on opportunities for the benefit of all.

“Having access to technology is essential in today’s increasing digital world. AT&T’s donation of laptops will provide Fort Eisenhower families with the technology they need to access educational and community resources and fully participate in today’s 21st century economy,” said Dr. Tom Clark, Executive Director, the Alliance for Fort Eisenhower. “We are grateful for AT&T’s continued support of the Alliance for Fort Eisenhower and the work they do to empower families and youth in our region.”

“Access to technology and connectivity is not just a luxury, but a fundamental necessity for success. “With AT&T’s donation, we are equipping Fort Eisenhower families with access to technology that will help them succeed in school and in life,” said Mayor Garnett Johnson, City of Augusta. “We appreciate the work the Alliance for Fort Eisenhower and AT&T do to create equitable opportunities in the Augusta community.”

“Closing the digital divide is a top priority in Georgia, and I’m proud of the collaboration among the Alliance for Fort Eisenhower, AT&T and Compudopt to provide Fort Eisenhower families with digital devices,” said Representative Brian Prince. “This donation is a vital step in closing the digital equity gap and ensuring that students and families have the digital tools and resources they need to flourish.”

“We are grateful for AT&T’s donation of laptops and know that it will have a significant impact on the families we serve,” said Nomi Stanton, Spouse of Commanding General and First Lady of Fort Eisenhower. “These laptops are more than just technology; they are a lifeline that helps our families access vital services and stay connected, no matter where duty takes us.”

This device distribution effort is part of the AT&T Connected Learning® initiative to help address the digital divide through internet accessibility, affordability and safe adoption. AT&T is committing $5 billion to help 25 million people get and stay connected to high-speed internet by 2030.

“AT&T is proud to support the Alliance for Fort Eisenhower, and proud to collaborate with Human I-T to provide local military families with laptops and the digital tools they need to thrive in today’s world,” said Stan Shepherd, Regional Director of External Affairs, AT&T Georgia. “Access to connectivity is vital in helping to bridge the digital divide and through this collaboration, we are connecting Fort Eisenhower families to greater possibility.”
