24 Jan Spectrum Announces $50,000 To Moreau Community Center Through Spectrum Community Assist
GLENS FALLS, NY – Oct. 14, 2021 – Spectrum today announced Moreau Community Center has received $50,000 through Spectrum Community Assist, the company’s new, five-year, $30 million philanthropic initiative to revitalize local community centers and invest in job training programs in rural and urban underserved communities where Spectrum operates.
Spectrum will kick-off the partnership on October 23 with a revitalization event at the center, where employees and community volunteers will provide repairs and other physical improvements to the facility.
“Community centers like Moreau Community Center are hallmarks of our neighborhoods, where people go for support, shared experiences and develop new job skills or find new employment,” said Rahman Khan, Vice President of Community Impact for Charter Communications, Inc., which operates the Spectrum brand of Internet, TV, Mobile and Voice products. “Through our partnership with Rebuilding Together of Saratoga County, Spectrum Community Assist will help Moreau Community Center provide essential employment training and resources to help the greater South Glens Falls area with a safe and revitalized physical space.”
Moreau Community Center will receive $50,000 to be used to develop a job skills training program and facility improvements as Spectrum employee volunteers will spend the day landscaping, painting, building shelves and desks and other interior projects. Additionally, because broadband is a critical component of a community center’s infrastructure, Spectrum will offer Moreau Community Center its 1 Gig service, at no charge, for the life of the program.
Additionally, Spectrum will donate 25 new laptops to support the organization’s training and technology programs. Moreau Community Center will also be dedicating their updated training and technology room with the Spectrum name.
“Moreau Community Center is thrilled to be partnering with Spectrum to provide much-needed services in our community,” said Donna Nichols, Executive Director, Moreau Community Center. “Strong partnerships are the basis for getting things which impact people positively done.”
Spectrum launched Spectrum Community Assist in September 2021 to benefit local organizations providing critical community services and job training skills in underserved cities and towns across the company’s 41-state footprint. By 2025, Spectrum will invest $25 million plus $5 million of in-kind contributions to improve 100 community centers serving an estimated 50,000 local residents.
