AT&T kicks off tech philanthropy campaign

Twenty-one L.A. families are the first of 50,000 eventual recipients of packages that include a PC, printer and Net access.

AT&T has launched a three-year, $100 million program, called AT&T Access All, that aims to provide technology packages--including a new computer, printer and Internet access--to 50,000 low-income families nationwide. Of those families, 10,000 will be residents of California, the state where the initiative was kicked off. Twenty-one households in a Los Angeles Habitat for Humanity housing project received their AT&T packages on Friday.

AT&T's partners in the initiative include One Economy, several low-income housing providers including Habitat for Humanity, and technology giants such as Intel, Dell and Siemens.
