It was quite a scene at the Boys and Girls Club on Casino Road in south Everett as Comcast donated 400 laptops and $50,000.00 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Snohomish County.

The donation continues an ongoing partnership with Comcast and Boys and Girls Clubs of Snohomish County. Since 2019, Comcast has built out more than 10 “Lift Zones” with free high-speed WiFi for the organization and donated a total value of several hundred thousand dollars in the county.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County Board Member and Comcast Washington VP of Finance and Business Operations Kevin Harrison presented a symbolic check to Marci Volmer, Chief Operating Officer, Snohomish County Boys & Girls Clubs. He then went on to tell all of the kids assembled for the event today that they were each getting their very own laptop.

Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin and Snohomish County Council member Nate Nehring then helped Comcast staff pass out laptops to kids from several Snohomish County Boys and Girls Clubs.

The kids will get to keep the laptops.

Most of the 400 laptops donated by Comcast will be distributed to boys and girls so they can stay connected at home during the summer break.

The remaining computers will be distributed to 10 Boys and Girls Clubs of Snohomish County locations in Edmonds, Everett, Granite Falls, Lake Stevens, Lynnwood, Marysville, and Mukilteo, which are already equipped with free internet from Comcast as a part of Comcast’s Lift Zone initiative.
