Earth Day is this Friday, April 22, and I’m happy to share that through a new partnership with the Imagination Foundation, Time Warner Cable (TWC) is introducing the 2016 Earth Day Cardboard Challenge. This Challenge provides an opportunity for children of all ages and the adults who support them to create novel, imaginative and sustainable solutions out of cardboard and other recycled materials.
At Time Warner Cable, we were thrilled to learn of the Mayor of Charlotte’s Jennifer Roberts focus on out of school time programs for youth aged 12 -18, and we just knew that our company had to be involved.
Time Warner Cable is proud of its military veterans. From our Vet Net employee network to our comprehensive military leave policy for reservists and active duty, TWC celebrates the contributions these employees make to our country and our company. In fact, military veterans make up just over 8 percent of TWC’s workforce.
Next month, Time Warner Cable will open its 20th Learning Lab at the Chinese-American Planning Council in Flushing, Queens. Our Learning Lab initiative provides underserved New York City residents with access to free WiFi and state of the art computers, through partnering with local nonprofits.
We’re pleased to share that our Go Green commitment is beginning to reach beyond the walls of our business and help create renewable energy for communities that we serve. For the past couple years, TWC has invested in solar deployments in Southern California, North Carolina, and Hawaii. In the last year, we have amplified our commitment with partnerships that will generate over 13 megawatts (MW) of solar power. Just to give you an idea of how much 13 MW actually is, it’s equal to powering over 600 homes in one year.
On February 17, 100 leaders from Wisconsin, Kansas, Nebraska, Ohio and Kentucky broke up into four teams and set out with partner agency Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati to end a major barrier to breaking the cycle of poverty, homeownership.
