Grant is Part of Commitment to Support 500 Nonprofits Nationally with $2.5 Million Through the Spectrum Employee Community Grant Program

GREENVILLE, S.C. — Spectrum today announced a donation of $2,500 to the food bank at Long Branch Baptist Church of Greenville through the company’s employee-driven grants program that recognizes the value of community service, Spectrum Employee Community Grants.

Long Branch Baptist Church offers multiple social services to Greenville including a food bank, clothing pantry and a hot breakfast served every second Saturday of the month and delivered to over 400 members of the surrounding community. It was at this breakfast event that the check was presented.

“At Long Branch we are striving to make an impact in the community,” said Donovan Parks, Director of Youth and Media Services. “We graciously accept this grant which will aide in providing food to the community through our weekly food bank and monthly community breakfast outreach.”

Earlier this year, Charter Communications, Inc., which operates the Spectrum brand of connectivity products and services, announced its commitment to award $2.5 million over the next five years to local nonprofits through Spectrum Employee Community Grants. Charter pledges to support a minimum of 500 nonprofit organizations across its 41-state service area, impacting more than 70,000 community members, through 2028.

“Spectrum Employee Community Grants support local nonprofits that hold a meaningful connection to the Spectrum employees who nominate them, and to the communities they serve,” said Rahman Khan, Group Vice President of Community Impact at Charter. “Looking forward to the next five years, we’re increasing our investment in the program, in support of our employees’ dedication to volunteer work and vital community organizations that enhance the lives of local residents.”

Launched in 2019, Spectrum Employee Community Grants support nonprofits nominated by employees with a personal connection to the organization through at least one year of their own volunteer work, including $77,500 in grants in South Carolina to date. Recipients deliver a broad range of critical social services to underserved community members, including food pantries, homeless shelters, clothing distribution, job training for veterans and paying overdue rent and utility bills for those in crisis.
