Mediacom announced today that it is a recipient of Content & Creativity Human Resources (C2HR) 2021 Social Impact Award.
This year the award focused on how corporations’ social responsibility responded to the unique circumstances of the COVID pandemic. Mediacom exemplified its social responsibility by donating a total of $100,000 to foodbanks nationwide in December 2020 across communities served by the company’s network.
In addition, Mediacom donated $10,000 to Fearless! Hudson Valley, an organization that provides comprehensive services, including shelter, to victims and survivors of interpersonal violence, human trafficking, sexual violence and other types of crime victimization.
Mediacom also expanded the accessibility of broadband services to low-income families with K-12 students through the Connect2Compete program, helping more than 10,000 families stay connected to schools during the pandemic.
“We are very proud to receive this award,” said Italia Commisso Weinand, Mediacom’s Executive President of Programming and Human Resources. “It is a testament to our employees’ generosity and dedication to those needing assistance during a time of crisis. Community involvement is part of the ethos of Mediacom and this award acknowledges our strength in that area.”
