Spectrum Housing Assist, Charter’s national philanthropic initiative to create safe and healthy homes, comes to Rockport Saturday
ROCKPORT, Texas – More than 20 Spectrum employee volunteers will be in Rockport Saturday to support Charter Communications, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: CHTR) first national philanthropic initiative, Spectrum Housing Assist. Helping others is rooted in the company’s commitment to improve 50,000 homes in the communities we live in and serve by 2020.
Spectrum partners with Rebuilding Together to provide critical home repairs to low-income homeowners. Spectrum and Rebuilding Together will bring the mission of safe and healthy homes to Paulette, a Rockport woman suffering from multiple health issues, whose home of six years was severely damaged by Hurricane Harvey. Watch this short video to meet Paulette.
Spectrum has committed to assist victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, including a $350,000 grant to Rebuilding Together. In all, Spectrum has committed more than $1.35 million to hurricane recovery efforts in the form of donations and free public service announcements for organizations helping those impacted.
Powered by Spectrum’s financial support and the expertise of Rebuilding Together, Spectrum employee volunteers will be providing interior and exterior repairs including roof repairs, window replacement, fence repair and interior painting. The project will also provide new furniture and appliances for Paulette’s home.
“At Spectrum, our technicians serve thousands of customers in their homes every day, and through Spectrum Housing Assist, we can serve the community by helping make our neighbors’ homes safe and healthy,” said John Owen, Charter’s Regional Vice President for Texas. “All of our area employees are happy to join the talented Rebuilding Together team to make a long-lasting impact in our community.”
