Johnston, Rhode Island, May 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobile Beacon is celebrating 10 years of providing high-speed, low-cost, mobile internet access to the anchors of communities: nonprofits, schools, libraries, and healthcare organizations.

Mobile Beacon is honored to provide a community grant in celebration of this anniversary to The HUBB Arts & Trauma Center in Newark, NJ.

We are honored to be able to supply a $10,000 monetary donation, as well as 10 laptops, 10 4G LTE hotspot devices, and free Mobile Beacon service to the organization.

The HUBB Arts & Trauma Center will use the mobile hotspots in three ways.

  3. To support their student mentoring programs.

Additionally, the $10,000 donation will be used to expand their building to increase their arts education programming.
