Disability Action Center (DAC) Executive Director, Evan LeVang, announced the acceptance of a $1,500 donation from AT&T on July 6th, 2016. DAC welcomed AT&T External Affairs representative, Preston Dickinson, for the presentation of their generous donation. Chico City Council Member, Randall Stone, was on hand as well. “We are honored by AT&T’s generosity,” said Evan LeVang. “Donations such as these enable DAC to provide innovative services beyond the scope of our regular grant-funded programs. We thank AT&T for their support of people with disabilities in our community.”
Council Member Stone, a long-time supporter of DAC, added, “The Disability Action Center’s receipt of AT&T support is testament to the outreach and support DAC provides to all members of our community. Without DAC developing solutions with me, City staff would not have been able to bring forward the Esplanade safety improvements and garner near unanimous Council approval. I am so proud of the work DAC performs and so honored to work closely with such a community asset. It is great when businesses like AT&T see that as well.”
