ALTICE USA KICKS OFF ANNUAL CHARITY CHAMPIONS PROGRAM AND ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIPS WITH 44 HIGH SCHOOLS

‘Altice Connects Charity Champions’ Promotes Volunteerism, Raises Funds for Select Local Charities

NEW YORK, December 14, 2016 – Altice USA today announced that it has partnered with 44 high schools to kick off its annual “Altice Connects Charity Champions” community program. Altice Connects Charity Champions promotes volunteerism and encourages high school students to raise funds for the charity of their choice. Available in Altice USA’s Optimum region since 2009, the company has expanded this charitable program to its Suddenlink region.

Participating high schools select a charity that is important to them and organize a series of events and activities to raise funds for their selected cause. To support these efforts, Altice USA provides each school with seed money to put towards their fundraising efforts as well a donation to each school’s charity of choice.  Throughout the school year, students will raise money and awareness for their selected charity and submit a summary of their activities to the company. Upon completion of the program, Altice USA will award the schools that best demonstrate how they inspired civic responsibility through their charitable efforts by showcasing school spirit, creativity and commitment. Through this program, Altice USA will donate more than $75,000 to local charities and schools. 

“The Altice Connects Charity Champions program creates a true partnership between schools, students and community organizations by supporting the local charitable efforts of high school students,” said Lee Schroeder, senior vice president, government and public affairs. “Giving back to our Optimum and Suddenlink communities is of utmost importance to Altice USA and we’re thrilled to partner with high schools to support students as they make a difference helping charitable causes.”
