May 15, 2024

The Figgers Foundation, renowned for its innovative contributions to bridging the digital divide, hosted a landmark event at the L. Claudia Allen Senior Center in Orlando. This impactful initiative, held on May 15, was organized in partnership with the Honorable Andrew Bain, State Attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit, which serves Orange and Osceola counties.  

This day was particularly special as it celebrated the 97th birthday of Mother Mable Butler, a lifelong servant of the Orlando community. Remarkably, Mother Butler remains active in the community and continues to drive herself, exemplifying vitality and dedication.

The event, graciously hosted by Mother Butler, marked a significant stride in enhancing the quality of life for senior citizens. Her enduring dedication to community service provided a heartfelt backdrop to the day’s proceedings.

Highlighting the event was the distribution of 105 free tablets, generously provided by The Figgers Foundation. These state-of the-art devices, equipped with telehealth capabilities, unlimited voice, text, and data, were specially designed to help seniors stay connected with their loved ones and healthcare providers. The initiative aims to empower seniors with tools to access essential services effortlessly and securely.

The Honorable Andrew Bain and Freddie Figgers, Chairman of The Figgers Foundation, emphasized their commitment to protecting and uplifting senior citizens. "In today's digital age, ensuring our senior citizens have access to secure and reliable technology is more critical than ever. The Figgers Foundation's initiative to provide advanced telehealth tablets not only connects our seniors with essential healthcare services but also offers them a vital link to their loved ones and community. This program embodies our commitment to protecting and empowering our elders, ensuring they remain safe, informed, and connected in an increasingly digital world. It's an honor to be part of an initiative that truly makes a difference in the lives of our senior citizens," stated Andrew Bain.

This initiative not only addresses the technological needs of seniors but also combats the social isolation often experienced by this demographic. With these tablets, seniors can maintain regular contact with family, friends, and support networks, significantly improving their mental and emotional well-being.

The Figgers Foundation's ongoing global efforts to bridge the digital divide through such innovative programs demonstrate a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by the elderly. This event exemplifies the foundation's mission to use technology as a force for good, enhancing the quality of life for vulnerable populations.
