The donation total of $15,682 was presented to the non-profit organization on March 27 at RCN’s Long Island City office. RCN provides high-speed internet, digital TV and phone services, and collected fees from new customer installation to be donated to Girls Inc. of NYC.
“As a company, we strive to help support the community and city in which we both work and live, and Girls Inc. of NYC is the epitome of those same values,” said Bruce Abbott, general manager of RCN New York. “It’s an amazing organization — one that is changing lives of young girls in our city every day, and we are delighted to be a part of that.”
Girls Inc. of NYC works to improve the lives of girls ages 6 to 18 through educational programs conducted by trained, mentoring professionals who work to help the girls succeed academically and lead healthy lives.
Both companies plan to continue working together to find other ways to help and support girls in the city.
