Sparklight Awards $2,000 to Siouxland Mental Health Helping Hands Program


July 7, 2023 – Sioux City, Iowa – Sparklight®, a leading broadband provider, recently awarded $2,000 to Siouxland Mental Health’s Helping Hands Program through its Charitable Giving Fund. Twenty-five nonprofit organizations across the company’s 24-state footprint received grants totaling $125,000 during the most recent award period.


Siouxland Mental Health's Helping Hands is a sponsorship program where clients can receive emergency funds. This program’s intent is to help clients cover financial shortfalls so they can maintain and improve their physical and mental health. Siouxland Mental Health clients fill out an application when in need of emergency funds, and the Helping Hands Committee reviews each application.


“Our clients face a variety of mental health challenges, and the Sparklight funding will help us meet their changing needs,” said Siouxland Mental Health’s Jessi Maxwell. “Being able to help a client pay for an apartment application, or a bus pass so they can get to a job, can have a tremendously positive and stabilizing impact on their lives, and on our community as a whole.”


The Charitable Giving Fund, which annually awards $250,000 in grants to local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations served by the Cable One family of brands (Sparklight®, Fidelity Communications, Hargray, ValuNet Fiber and CableAmerica), concentrates support in the following priority areas:
