Cox Communications has donated and installed a Cox Technology Center at The Salvation Army’s Owens Social Services Campus, located at 35 West Owens Ave.
The Cox Technology Center at The Salvation Army, valued at approximately $10,000, is part of the organization’s Vocational Training Program and provides program participants and other shelter residents access to the internet for activities like job searching, school research, resume writing, and more.
“The Cox Technology Center will allow vocational, veteran and other clients and residents of The Salvation Army’s Owens Campus the connections they need to move forward, completing not simply a transaction, but a transition in their lives,” said Cox Southwest Region Vice President of Technology and Salvation Army Board Member David Diers.
Cox Communications has also donated a Cox Technology Center at The Shade Tree and Cox Innovation Labs at several Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada over the past decade.
“Cox has a long history of supporting broadband adoption programs in Southern Nevada and across the country,” said Diers. “These programs connect the most vulnerable members of our society so they can compete and have a greater chance of success in the digital world.”
