Sergey Makogon and Larissa Husosky: Our turn to give back
"Hospitals and nursing homes near the coast had evacuated people into high schools like the one we visited in Garner, North Carolina," Sergey said. "There were about 600 people."
Sergey and Larissa worked with our teams to help people recharge their devices for several hours. Later that weekend, they visited other shelters. Many people were surprised to see them and also surprised that they could recharge their devices for free, whether or not they were AT&T customers.
"We came because we had the resources and the time," Larissa said, "so we wanted to help these communities any way we could. We remember how much help we got from our peers several years ago during Hurricane Sandy. It was our turn to give back."
