PHOENIX, Feb. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — As nonprofit organizations work to provide food and shelter for Texas residents impacted by Winter Storm Uri, Sparklight, part of the Cable One family of brands, has donated $15,000, along with food and supplies to support relief efforts in the markets it serves. Funds have been distributed to local non-profit agencies, including the Salvation Army.
“Our hearts are with the Texas residents who have been impacted by this winter storm,” said Julie Laulis, President and CEO. “After ensuring our associates and their families are safe, our primary focus will be on restoring service to our customers as quickly as possible following the restoration of local power.

Commercial power outages and damage from snow and ice may be affecting service for some Sparklight customers.
