On this GivingTuesday, we are reminded of the importance of giving back to our local communities. Charter Communications accomplishes this throughout the year through its national philanthropic initiative, Charter our Community.
Charter our Community combats the crisis of unhealthy and inadequate housing in communities across the United States. Through nonprofit partners like Rebuilding Together, Charter our Community provides education, resources and financial support to improve 25,000 unsafe and unhealthy homes in the Charter footprint by 2020.
“At Charter, we know the importance of home and believe it is critical to enhance home safety within the communities in which we live and work,” says Charter Communications president and CEO Tom Rutledge. “Through Charter our Community we’ll strengthen and improve communities, using our network and philanthropic partners to educate, empower and support our customers and the public to maintain safe and healthy homes.”
Since launching in December 2014, Charter our Community has improved more than 880 homes, with Charter employees having donated 4,700 hours of their time.
