ALLO for Education program nets $2,700 for CCS technology
For the sixth year, ALLO Communications has supported local schools with its ALLO for Education referral program.
This year, donations across ALLO communities totaled more than $172,000.
In a presentation Monday, Chase County Schools received $2,700. Allison O’Neil, vice president of customer operations for ALLO, said ALLO and Gigabit, LLC each provided half of the $2,700 donation.
Donations are also being made to other schools in Alliance, Bridgeport, Gering, Hastings, Lincoln, Ogallala, North Platte and Scottsbluff, as well as Fort Morgan and Breckenridge in Colorado.
“At ALLO, we are dedicated to bridging the digital gap with superior technology and local values. The best way to inspire progress and innovation is to start with our kids, educators, and schools, and that’s why the ALLO for Education campaign was developed,” ALLO President Brad Moline said.
For each new customer who chose ALLO high-speed internet, TV or phone service between July and September, ALLO donated $50 to the local school district of the customer’s choosing.
Since starting the program, ALLO has donated almost $400,000 to local schools.
“Technology is now an absolute necessity in the classroom and at home. ALLO’s all-fiber network offers unmatched speed, giving students the opportunity to explore far beyond the walls of their school. These funds for our schools, so they can work to stay ahead of the technology curve, are essential to our students’ success,” Moline said.
The donations will be targeted for the schools to invest in technology-related items and enhancements.
