AT&T’s Believe Kansas City Initiative Donates Pandemic Relief Supplies: AT&T is donating Pandemic Relief Supplies (PRS) to a variety of organizations in the Kansas City area.
“This donation is a natural extension of our Believe Kansas City initiative to support these organizations and we are grateful to be able to help keep people safe and healthy as they continue the work to serve our communities.”Molly Kocour Boyle — President, AT&T Kansas
These organizations focus on supporting mental health, general healthcare, and education within Johnson and Wyandotte counties. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is an overwhelming demand for PRS for healthcare facilities and educational development facilities in the Kansas City area. AT&T’s Believe Kansas City initiative is helping fulfill that need by donating hand sanitizer, face coverings, and disinfectant supplies.
