The WRWC is proud to announce that we were selected as one the recipients of the Cox Communications Tech Boost Award!

In effort to bridge the technology gap faced by many nonprofit organizations that lack the modern technology needed to perform most effectively, Cox Communications has awarded grants to nonprofit organizations committed to investing in technology and equipment to better serve their communities and fulfill their missions. Among the recipients of Cox’s Tech Boost is the Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council, which will receive $10,000 from the broadband company.

The WRWC plans to use this funding to invest in community programming, such as the Leo Bouchard Conservation Center (home of the WRWC’s new Environmental Education Center), the Olneyville Resilience Hub, and the asset management system used throughout the watershed to monitor and manage trash cans, murals, and bike paths.

Ross Nelson, Vice President of Cox Communications New England market said of the Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council and other Cox Communications award recipient Downcity Design, “Both DownCity Design and the Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council have shown they are committed to innovating with purpose, and we are grateful for the impact they continue to have on Rhode Island.”

Thank you to Cox Communications for supporting the WRWC’s mission to create positive environmental, social, and economic change by revitalizing the Woonasquatucket River, its Greenway and its communities. We take pride in your continued support for our programs!
