AT&T employees in Lebanon will come together to volunteer at Kids Day as part of a project called Believe Lebanon℠, which combines our assets and our employees to make a positive impact in the community.  It will be the first in a series of activities employees have planned for this year.

During the day-long event, AT&T volunteers will distribute care packages to families. A specially equipped AT&T vehicle will roll into Lebanon Community Park, on Saturday, April 6th, between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The vehicle will enable attendees to check out the latest mobile devices and services.  And, area residents will be able to learn more about job opportunities at AT&T’s facility in Lebanon.

“Our employees are compassionate people with big hearts.  They regularly give their time, talent, and personal financial resources to help their friends and neighbors. Through Believe Lebanon, we’re able to build and expand the great work our team does every day here in the Heart of Southwest Virginia,” said Vince Apruzzese, president, AT&T Virginia.


Apruzzese said the company is harnessing the commitment, compassion and enthusiasm of our employees in Lebanon with resources and support from other business units within the company, to make a meaningful impact in the lives of the residents of Lebanon and Southwest Virginia.  He also added AT&T is hiring customer service sales representatives at the facility.

Tony Barton, the Lebanon center’s director, said the positions offer wages starting at $15 per hour without experience, training, benefits, discounts on services and more. Anyone interested in these jobs can visit and search Lebanon VA to learn more. Candidates also will be able to apply on Saturday.

“We’re so excited to be part of Kids Day as part of Believe Lebanon. Our team is planning at least one event each month for the rest of the year, doing what we can to improve the lives of our neighbors in Lebanon and the region,” said Barton.

The #Believe Lebanon project coincides with the City of Lebanon’s year-long bicentennial celebration. AT&T is supporting events throughout the year that commemorate this milestone.

“AT&T and its employees have been good neighbors for years.  We appreciate all they do to support our community, and we’re happy they’re helping us mark our bicentennial at many events throughout the year,” said Lebanon Mayor Tony Dodi. “Believe Lebanon will be successful because AT&T and the local employees believe in our community.”
