Helping the Homeless in Bradenton

Bright House Networks employees were pleased to stop by the Community Coalition on Homelessness in Bradenton, Florida on Tuesday, December 18 to present them a check for $10,000 as part of its 12 Days of Giving campaign.

Bright House Networks employees visit the Community Coalition on Homelessness to present the $10,000 donation as a result of the 12 Days of Giving campaign.

With a mission of providing, coordinating and facilitating services to the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless in Manatee County, Florida, the team at Community Coalition on Homelessness is dedicated to offering basic services to help people move on a path to improve their situation, and ultimately, to independence if possible. The coalition serves an average of 200 people per day and each month since September, has received over 600 applications from people requesting help.

Bright House Networks’ 12 Days of Giving campaign was designed to support charitable organizations in its local communities that are focused on helping the military, homeless, hungry and children.  During the 12 days, which ran from December 1-12, Bright House Networks posted a different picture of an item in need on its Facebook page. The items ranged from razors for military personnel to baby formula and diapers for children.  For every person who shared the photo of the day, Bright House Networks committed to donate that same number of items to a charity in each of its local communities.  The charity with the most shares received an additional $10,000 donation on behalf of Bright House Networks and its giving customers.
