Financial commitment to support computer lab dedication
NASHVILLE – January 31, 2019 – The Comcast Foundation will announce this morning that it has awarded a $20,000 grant to Legacy Mission Village (Legacy) in Nashville. The grant will support the dedication of a computer lab that will enable the nearly 400 refugee families served per month by Legacy to access social services and communicate with family abroad.
Legacy’s mission is to provide hope and healing to refugees in Middle Tennessee by empowering them with the education and skills needed to achieve successful integration. The facility’s computer lab will consist of 25 laptops donated by the Comcast Foundation.
“Comcast is proud to support Legacy Mission Village and their important work toward helping families throughout Middle Tennessee,” said Doug Guthrie, Regional SVP at Comcast.
In addition to the grants from the Comcast Foundation, Comcast also responds to community needs through local sponsorships and in-kind support, such as airing public service announcements, employee volunteerism, and providing technology equipment and services to organizations across the country. The Comcast Foundation continues to build on its efforts through expanding access to technology to promote digital inclusion, helping individuals build skills for the digital economy, and encouraging innovation and entrepreneurialism.
Legacy Mission Village is a 501(c)(3) Christian mission organization that achieved its non-profit status in January 2012. The organization relies on the generous contributions of supporters and volunteers.
