AT&T joined Give Kids the World Village to host a volunteer day in Orlando. Nearly 600 people worked together to make it possible for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to celebrate a year’s worth of holidays in a week. This event kicked off the annual Revolution dealer conference, hosted by DIRECTV — part of the AT&T family — for dealers, partners and employees. Attendees created and assembled decorations to bring the parties to life, including trick-or-treat bags for a Halloween Party, winter holiday craft kits and pom-poms and medals for a talent show party. Recognizing the impact that each of these decorations will have in lifting the spirits of these families, attendees applied their special touches to nearly 45,000 decorations.
