Shots for Tots [AT&T Government Issue]

by Hope Katz Gibbs
AT&T Government Issue
Summer 1996

BABY ANNA WAS UNDRESSED, PLAYING with her fingers, and smiling. She paid little attention to the long needle in the hand of Carlos Maldonado, a pediatric nurse in Alexandria, Va. He quickly distracted Anna and inserted the injection of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) into her thigh. Anna wailed. Her parents winced. But Carlos smiled. He knows the importance of immunization. “It hurts going in, but if Anna and all other babies under two years didn’t get this shot, the diseases it prevents could be less life threatening,” he said. That advice is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which set up an Immunization Hot Line using AT&T’s S2000 toll-free service. Dial 1 800 232-2S22, and parents can find out where and when to get their children immunized.

Helping Hands: AT&T employees reach out to DC school [AT&T Government Issue]

AT&T Government Issue
Winter 1997

AT&T’S CIVILIAN MARKETS COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT Committee knew it wanted to reach out locally—but whom could it best serve? National Account Manager Gwen McLaughlin had passed Stevens Elementary School, a public school located in the heart of the Washington business district near AT&T’s offices. She noticed the trim on the building could use a fresh coat of paint, saw the flower boxes were filled with weeds, and wondered what else needed repair. McLaughlin suggested to the committee that Stevens might be a spot to focus its attention. The members agreed, and McLaughlin called Principal Gloria Henderson. “Do we need help? We sure do,” said Henderson, who was down seven teachers and considerable funds this year due to budget cuts. “I have a laundry list of things that need to be done.”

AT&T Government Issue
Spring 1998

GUAM LOOKED LIKE A WAR ZONE on Dec. 16 when supertyphoon Paka struck the island. Wind gusts of 230 miles per hour destroyed 3,000 houses and left another 31, 000 severely damaged. On December 17, President Clinton declared Guam a federal disaster area and dispatched the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to the scene. In addition to providing more than 2,000 families with food and tents, FEMA needed to set up lines of communication between its disaster field office in Agana, Guam, and the FEMAMount Weather Emergency Assistance Center (MWEAC) located in Bluemont, Va. The agency immediately turned to AT&T.

Honoring the Women of War [AT&T Government Issue]

by Hope Katz Gibbs
AT&T Government Issue

Since the Women in Military Service for America (WIMSA) monument opened, thousands have visited to show their support of the 1.8 million women who have served America since the Revolutionary War. Built by the WIMSA Foundation, the memorial stands on 4.2 acres at the entrance to Arlington National Cemetery in Washington. Memorial spokesperson Jennifer Finstein says that thanks to all of AT&T’s support, among others, the project has been an incredible success-but there is still more work to be done. Only 300,000 military women are registered in our computer system,” she says. “We hope to register all of the women who have served our country.”
