“Customer service and service to our communities are priorities at Time Warner Cable, so Together We Can Week of Service is a natural extension of the values of our employees, and company,” Time Warner Cable Area Vice President of Operations John Higgins said.
Each year, TWC provides millions in financial, in-kind and volunteer support. TWC’s community focus includes diversity & inclusion, disaster preparedness, improving the environment, internet safety and creating the next generation of problem solvers. TWC encourages employee volunteerism by offering paid time so associates can support community organizations through their skills, time and efforts.
TWC’s best-known community initiative is Connect a Million Minds (CAMM). The $100 million cash and in-kind philanthropic initiative is designed to address America’s declining proficiency in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), which puts our children at risk of not competing successfully in a global economy. More than 1.035 million people have taken the TWC CAMM pledge to help connect young people to the exciting world of STEM, and that number continues to grow.
