On Friday, March 18th, SF Connected teamed up with Self-Help for the Elderly, Chinatown Community Development Center, and Comcast in San Francisco’s Chinatown to educate the community about the many benefits of being connected to the internet. The event was held at the International Hotel and over 100 seniors attended!
During the event, attendees learned about Internet Essentials – the senior pilot program Comcast launched last summer in collaboration with the San Francisco Department of Aging and Adult Services and SF Connected – as well as where they can receive free computer training around the city via the SF Connected program. Volunteers were also onsite assisting seniors with the Internet Essentials enrollment process. Seniors who signed up for the program during the event were eligible to win raffle prizes provided by Comcast. The prizes included 10 laptop computers and 10 Internet Essentials Opportunity Cards (6 months of free internet service).
The next Internet Essentials Sign-Up Event will be held on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. More details will follow soon.
