Bright House Networks announced today the expansion of Community Service Day, an employee volunteer initiative in Florida, Alabama, Indiana, Michigan and California.
Launched initially in Tampa, Fla. in 2005, the Bright House Networks' Community Service Day program enables employees to volunteer in their community during work hours. The program gives all full-time employees one regularly scheduled workday each calendar year to volunteer and part-time employees four hours per calendar year to volunteer.
"The Bright House Networks' Community Service Day initiative has been a great success since we have such a generous group of employees," said Kimberly Maki, corporate vice president, corporate communications & web strategies, Bright House Networks. "We want to provide even more opportunities for volunteering, and increase our reach throughout all of our service areas."
Bright House Networks' employees make a difference by volunteering their time at afterschool programs, public schools, arts and cultural, civic, environmental and community service organizations. In 2011, more than 200 Bright House Networks executives served on the board of directors for more than 230 organizations. In addition to serving customers, Bright House Networks is committed to serving the community by providing resources, local leadership, and supporting volunteerism throughout all service areas.
