TEXAS CABLE OPERATOR HONORED FOR HELPING CHILD ADVOCATES
Recognition illustrates cable’s community service during TCA’s 50th anniversary
Comcast has been recognized for helping volunteers better assist abused children, just one example of the many ways cable operators across Texas have worked to better their communities for more than 50 years.
Child Advocates, Inc., lauded Comcast at its annual luncheon for donating cash and in-kind services towards the production of a new volunteer orientation video. The Houston-area nonprofit will use the video to help train court-appointed volunteers to speak up for abused children who are lost in the legal system and to help guide them into safe environments.
“Every community has numerous organizations that need help to draw public attention to their mission and needs,” said State Sen. Joan Huffman (R-Houston). “Texas is fortunate to have cable operators, such as Comcast, that don’t hesitate to use their resources and talents to assist these groups and make their communities a better place to live and work. I congratulate Comcast on their well-deserved recognition from Child Advocates, Inc.”
“Comcast is proud to be able to use our resources to help Child Advocates, Inc., and other worthwhile organizations that work to improve the lives of others in our community,” said Ray Purser, vice president, government and public relations for Comcast’s Houston region.
The recognition of Comcast is an example of the kudos Texas cable operators receive each year for the airtime, production services and other volunteer hours they donate to nonprofits and other organizations in their local communities. The Texas Cable Association is highlighting cable’s community contributions during its 50th anniversary year.
“The Texas Cable Association is proud of the role the cable industry has played for more than 50 years to enrich the thousands of communities our industry serves across the state,” said TCA Chairman John Owen. “We look forward to continuing to support civic organizations, local events and other worthwhile projects for another 50 years and beyond.”
TCA (www.txcable.com) has been the primary trade organization for cable operators in Texas since 1960.
