Release date- 27042012 - COLUMBUS, Ga. - Knology, a leading cable, high-speed Internet and digital phone services provider, and Outdoor Channel, America's leader In Outdoor TV, recently partnered to help clean the grounds of Reese Road Leadership Academy in Columbus and to encourage Earth Day recognition among elementary-aged children.
The event was held on April 23 in conjunction with Knology's 2012 Clean Our Communities initiative and Outdoor Channel's volunteer program, Outdoor Channel Corps. Eleven Knology of Columbus volunteers and 50 fifth-grade boys and girls worked together to clean several bags of trash off school grounds. Knology also planted a tree in honor of Earth Day and worked alongside Reese Road's environmental team to encourage school children to do their part in protecting and preserving the environment.
'This event provided us with a chance to work closely with school children, reiterating the importance of keeping areas clean and working together to care for Mother Earth,' says Dave Troxel, general manager for Knology of Columbus. 'We truly had a great day working with the amazing kids at Reese Road.'
Each April, Knology chooses an area in each of its markets as part of its Clean Our Communities initiative and encourages community members to join forces in carrying out city-wide cleanup efforts. The initiative aligns with Outdoor Channel Corps philanthropic effort to mobilize volunteers to restore and improve public lands and spaces to ensure the outdoor lifestyle thrives in local communities nationwide.
'Volunteerism is the cornerstone of the Outdoor Channel Corps program, and Outdoor Channel prides itself on being an active leader in the communities we serve. This marks our third year collaborating with Knology, a valued cable services partner, for their Clean Our Communities initiative. We were happy to work alongside them on an activity that will create a lasting impact in the Columbus community,' said Jeff Schmal, vice president of marketing and research for Outdoor Channel.
