Comcast Donates $45,000 to Corazón Healdsburg to Empower Children and Families and Help Close the Digital Divide

Comcast donates $45,000 and free laptops to Corazon Healdsburg to empower children and families and help close the digital divide.

At a magical event in the North Bay Area, Comcast announced its partnership with Corazón Healdsburg and celebrated a $45,000 donation and free laptops for every youth to help close the digital divide. 

Corazón Healdsburg supports hundreds of low-income, monolingual Spanish-speaking individuals and families in the area that often do not have access to technology. The nonprofit organization empowers individuals and families with a bilingual resource center and access to family-centered case management, education, training opportunities, and community events.

To celebrate the partnership with Corazón Healdsburg, Comcast hosted a holiday celebration at Costeaux Bakery. Families received the red-carpet treatment as they arrived at the bakery to enjoy a wonderful dinner in a festive space filled with over one thousand nutcrackers. Guest speakers included Healdsburg Mayor Ariel Kelley; James Gore, Sonoma County District 4 Supervisor; Marcy Flores, Executive Director of Corazón Healdsburg; and Aaron Walker, Area Vice President of Field Operations for Comcast California. At the event, Comcast surprised children with free laptops and gifts to enjoy a screening of the new Trolls Band Together movie at Airport Stadium 12.

Here at Comcast, we know it takes great partnerships to provide communities with connectivity to the people, resources, and services that are important to them. For Mayor Ariel Kelley, providing access to digital skills is key to supporting families in rural communities. “I’m proud to partner with our frontline community organizations and lift up these partnerships that bridge divides in our communities.” 

The youth are our future, and Comcast is honored to support the individuals and families of Corazón Healdsburg to ensure they are connected to the digital skills needed for success in school and at home. This partnership is made possible through Project UP, which is the company’s $1 billion commitment to reach 50 million people over the next ten years with the tools, resources, and skills needed to succeed in a digital world.
