Sparklight Awards $1,000 to Natchez Children's Services


Feb. 24, 2023 – Natchez, Miss.Sparklight®, a leading broadband communications provider, recently awarded a $1,000 grant to Natchez Children’s Services through the company’s Charitable Giving Fund. Twenty-eight non-profit organizations across the company’s 24-state footprint received grants totaling more than $110,000 during the company’s most recent award period.


An advocacy center for children that provides a supportive environment where children who have witnessed crime or have been subject to sexual or physical abuse can receive rehabilitative therapy, referrals, and advocacy services in the pursuit of healing and justice. The center plans to use the grant to produce visual displays that raise awareness of National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April.
