What's New at IHS?
IHS, 2-1-1 HELPLINE and several partners are working with T-Mobile's Project 10Million to connect local students to the internet via free Wi-Fi hotspots generously provided by the company.

To qualify, a household must have at least one K-12 student in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

Over five years, T-Mobile has committed to supporting 10 million eligible families who are enrolled in the National School Lunch program. Once enrolled in Project 10Million, these families will receive 100GB of FREE internet data per year for five years and a FREE mobile hotspot, plus the opportunity to purchase devices at a low cost.

607-776-9467 ext. 222 to volunteer now.
Helping nonprofit organizations get a foothold in your community and social network is an easy way to express your support, but the best thing you can do is make them aware of the management support services available to them through IHS Membership.
