The AT&T Pioneers donated school supplies to the Washington County District School Board for needy children.

“This is the volunteer aspect of the telecommunication industry,” said Area Vice President Ray Dubuque. “We support schools, activities that go on at schools, we do nursing home visits, we do a lot of different things within the community.”

Dubuque explained that it used to be just AT&T that started the volunteer network but it has since then expanded to telecommunication entities such as Verizon and Centrelink. He also added that they are the largest volunteer network with a single field of specialty with 500,000 members but also the least known due to their modesty.

Donated were hundreds of items that included school supplies of every sort, ranging from crayons to notepads and bags.

It was announced that Rogers Insurance Agency of Chipley was celebrating their 40th Anniversary as a third generation company.

The Chamber also welcomed Northwest Florida Community Hospital’s new CEO Mark Bush.

“The staff is outstanding and the community is very welcoming,” said Bush. “We appreciate all the support we receive from the community, board and staff. We’re here to take care of you so if you need anything don’t hesitate to ask.”
