Friday, Aug. 14, 2020, leadership from Spectrum presented Sojourner with a generous contribution and donated 200 home safety kits to be given to domestic violence survivors. Sojourner and Spectrum staff distributed Spectrum Safe & Healthy Home Kits to Family Peace Center clients via a convenient, low-contact drive-thru in the FPC parking lot.
Spectrum Safe & Healthy Home Kits feature easy-to-install and -use products to help make homes safer and healthier; such as a first-aid kit, LED night light, smoke alarm, emergency radio, carbon monoxide tester, cleaning solution and more.
“We appreciate Spectrum’s commitment to improving health and safety in our community,” said Sojourner President and CEO Carmen Pitre. “Many of our clients struggle to meet basic needs. The pandemic has caused additional stress and economic hardship for survivors. These kits will be put to great use.”
Spectrum’s Housing Assist program has helped improve more than 41,000 homes so far this year. The company hopes to improve 50,000 homes by the end of 2020. To learn more about Spectrum Housing Assist, visit www.corporate.charter.com/housing-assist.
