[Music] Institutions like Mill Neck School for the Deaf are vital resources. Okay, you ready? Come this way, this way.
What they offer most is essential community.
It's their Utopia where they feel safe, where they feel that they can thrive.
Two years ago that Utopia transformed completely.
Hard of hearing students were forced into remote learning.
For Deaf kids, it was even worse because this is where they get the connection.
Technology became an integral part of Mill Neck operations.
To ensure the power of connection is never disrupted again, our sponsor Verizon is teaming up with football player and spokesperson John Feliciano in a giant way to support small business like the Mill Neck Foundation.
Next up something special, I have a giant surprise for you. Okay, I want to introduce to you New York Giant's own John Feliciano.
My brother was born deaf so I know from first-hand experience what you guys do here. My friends over at Verizon were so inspired by your guys's story that they're donating fifteen thousand dollars to the Mill, thank you to improve the lives of the Deaf or hard of hearing.
Mill Neck organization's mission statement says it wants the Deaf and hard of hearing Community to be included, empowered, celebrated, and embraced as equals and technology is a key part of achieving that goal. Yeah, it is. Yes, it is.
