LITTLE ROCK, Ark.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– For the second year, Kinetic by Windstream announced it will be donating $5,000 in honor of Military Appreciation Month to the A Million Thanks scholarship fund that will benefit the children of fallen military service members.
“I’m proud to work for a company that is regularly recognized as a great employer of veterans and military spouses,” said Angel Ramos, president of Kinetics’ veteran employee resource group. “Supporting the children of fallen soldiers as they pursue higher education takes that commitment to our military community one step further, and it’s gratifying to see that commitment.”
Earlier this month, the company announced its second annual partnership with the nonprofit that provides appreciation to active military men and women by sending personal letters of gratitude.
“A Million Thanks is so excited to be able to grant higher education scholarships to children of fallen military because of the generous donation from Kinetic,” said Shauna Fleming, founder and CEO of A Million Thanks. “We are looking for students to support, so if you are or know of an eligible student who would like to apply, please visit our website.”
During the month of May, community members who want to write letters to military service members can submit them in three ways:
- Each Kinetic retail storewill serve as a collection site for anyone who wants to write a letter of appreciation.
- Additionally, to reinforce the company’s commitment to “High Speed for Here,” Kinetic will participate in local military appreciation events across its 18-state footprint during the month of May. These events also give members of the community a chance to drop off handwritten thank-you notes.
- Community members can submit letters online through the Kinetic website as well.
A Million Thanks will distribute the letters to service members.
