Sparklight Awards $3,000 to La Grange Nonprofit, Area Ministries for Emergency Needs


Jan. 31, 2023 – La Grange, Texas – Sparklight®, a leading broadband communications provider, recently awarded a $3,000 grant to Area Ministries for Emergency Needs (AMEN) 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.


AMEN, a food pantry in Fayette County, used the grant to provide food relief during the holidays.


“The funds were used to provide vouchers for our patrons who visit the pantry in the month of December,” said Garry Schellberg, AMEN Treasurer. “The voucher is for an additional $20 of product redeemable at the local H-E-B supermarket in La Grange. This grant offset the cost of providing over 300 vouchers, allowing the patrons to purchase above and beyond what the pantry has to offer to complement their food requirements.”


The Charitable Giving Fund, which annually awards nearly $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:
