Bridging the Digital Divide

It's becoming harder and harder to get along in today's society without being connected to the world-wide web in some way.
15 community residents received computers on Friday as a part of the "Bridging the Digital Divide Program" offered by Binghamton University's Center for Civic Engagement.

Residents who completed a computer literacy course were eligible to sign up for loaned computers.

"And with three children ranging from ages six to seventeen you know there's reports and projects for school and we're always running to grandma's so I'm incredibly thankful," said Pamela Shepard an ATTAIN Lab Student.

The "Bridging the Digital Divide" program received its computers from the Geodis supply chain Optimisation.
