Thank You to TCC Gives!
IBCF is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with TCC Gives, the community foundation that is supported by TCC Verizon Wireless. Their support for our new program, "Not Just a Phone," will provide ISBVI middle and high school students with iPhones, data plans, and hot spots. Using the BlindSquare app in conjunction with state-of-the-art iBeacon technology, our students will be able to work with our Orientation & Mobility (O&M) teachers to navigate the world in a way that increases their independence, enhances their preparation for life after they leave ISBVI, and supports the skills they need to be successful in college, the workplace, and beyond. We are particularly grateful to TCC Verizon employee Tony Lacharite who has supported this project from the start and will spearhead TCC employees to volunteer to install the technology. Thank you, TCC Gives and Julie Moorehead, for your mission of strengthening communities by helping people!
