WOW! Gave Back More Than $125,000 to its Communities in 2022


ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Dec. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- WOW! Internet, Cable & Phone (NYSE: WOW), a leading broadband services provider, today announced it donated more than $125,000 in 2022 through a combination of educational scholarships, employee volunteer hours and other contributions in support of the communities it serves.

To bolster local educational opportunities, WOW! awarded more than $70,000 in scholarships and funding for schools. These contributions went directly to upgrading equipment for STEM initiatives, scholarships to support students' post-secondary education, supporting equity in the workplace with the Colorado Women's Chamber of Commerce and helping meet the need for critical tchnology in education.



Through the company's longstanding "WOW! in the Neighborhood" (WIN) program, employees volunteered in their local communities, donating time and materials equivalent to tens of thousands of dollars. Created in 2011, the WIN program provides the opportunity for all WOW! employees to donate time and talent to charities of their choosing, such as Habitat for Humanity and the American Red Cross. This year, WOW! employees also provided thousands of dollars worth of Thanksgiving meals to those in need.

In Florida, where many communities were severely impacted by Hurricane Ian, WOW! donated $30,000 to the American Red Cross to support relief efforts. These funds helped keep emergency shelters and supplies stocked in communities impacted by flooding, wind damage and power outages.


"Spirit of service is integral to who we are at WOW!, and has long been one of our key values as we serve customers and communities across diverse markets," said David Brunick, WOW!'s chief human resources officer. "We take great pride in our employees' initiative to strengthen their communities and are grateful to provide support where it is needed most, whether that is helping a community recover from a natural disaster or making a substantial impact on providing students with resources for a bright future."

WOW! employees have donated tens of thousands of volunteer hours to charities across the company's footprint since the WIN program was launched. More information about the WIN program and WOW!'s dedication to supporting communities, preserving the environment and advancing equity initiatives can be found in WOW!'s 2022 ESG Report.
