MILWAUKEE (Jan. 6, 2021) — Charter Communications, Inc. today announced a donation of $2,500 to the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight of Wisconsin, as part of a special campaign to honor and support veterans across the Midwest.
Charter was joined by state Sen. Dale Kooyenga to present the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight of Wisconsin with the contribution as part of Charter’s effort to support veterans across the Midwest. The Stars and Stripes Honor Flight honors veterans with trips to Washington, D.C., to visit memorials and experience a day where they are honored for their service.
“Charter is committed to building connections with veterans,” said Gary Underwood, Group Vice President of State Government Relations. “We partner with schools across our service area each fall to honor our veterans. This year is different so we organized a series of charitable contributions to showcase our continued support and gratitude for veterans in the communities we serve rather than our traditional in-person events.”
Charter, which operates the Spectrum brand of TV, Internet, Mobile and Voice services, is committed to improving communities and impacting lives where its customers and employees live and work
“We appreciate Charter’s commitment to honor our veterans,” said Karyn Roelke from the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight of Wisconsin. “Through contributions like this, we can continue to see veterans experience a meaningful day in our Nation’s Capital, visiting memorials and spending time with others who have served.”
“I’m proud to support Charter Communications in their ongoing effort to support veterans,” added Sen. Kooyenga. “As a veteran and member of the U.S. Army Reserve, I understand the importance of supporting Veterans organizations and am pleased to join Charter in recognizing the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight in this way.”
The company has a history of honoring those who continue to serve in the Guard or Reserves, and has programs to help veterans and military spouses build careers. Nearly 11,000 Charter employees — almost 10% of the company’s total workforce — have a military affiliation.
