Chris and Dorothy Rolle are making a difference in Avondale, one child at a time. Every morning, they arise at 4 a.m. to help provide a nutritious breakfast, healthy snacks and school supplies for nearly 100 children who gather at the bus stop across the street. EPB staged a one-of-a-kind Fibervention to give them a helping hand. Together we can all be neighbors helping neighbors.
A full time nursing student working her way through college, Monica needed faster Internet in order to download class materials and complete Web-based assignments. Her Internet speeds were so slow and inconsistent that Monica was forced to do her homework at a friend’s house with EPB Fi Speed Internet. Monica kept saying she wished she had Internet that fast and reliable so her good friend nominated her for an EPB Fibervention. And now Monica has the Gig – the nation’s fastest Internet.
Ms. Martha has spent most of her 86 years giving back to the community through her church. So when a member of the congregation reached out to EPB and told us that Miss Martha wanted to start streaming video on the Internet because she’d heard so much about it, EPB was ready to make that happen. In addition to setting her up with the nation’s fastest Internet, we even put a TV in her kitchen so she could watch Jeopardy while she enjoys dinner at the table.
