In an effort to assist with COVID-19 relief efforts across their 21-state footprint, Sparklight and the other Cable One family of brands have donated $150,000 to the Meals on Wheels America COVID-19 Response Fund and $150,000 to local food banks in the markets they serve.

“Sparklight has set an example for others by helping us to ensure America’s vulnerable seniors will continue to receive the meals they desperately need amid this national crisis,” said Kristine Templin, chief development officer of Meals on Wheels America. “This generous donation will go a long way in providing certainty during these uncertain times, and I speak on behalf of the nationwide Meals on Wheels network in expressing our deep appreciation.”

Meals on Wheels America supports more than 5,000 community-based programs across the country that are dedicated to addressing senior isolation and hunger. This network serves virtually every community in America.

In addition to monetary donations, Sparklight and the other Cable One entities have opened more than 120 free Wi-Fi hotspots in local office parking lots and other public areas across their footprint for public use during the pandemic. Company associates are also making masks for first responders, sending gift baskets and hot meals from local restaurants to hospitals and police and fire stations, and donating books to senior centers, to name just a few efforts.

Sparklight provides consumers with connectivity and entertainment services, including high-speed internet and advanced Wi-Fi solutions, cable television and phone service.
