Kinetic Donates to A Million Thanks Scholarship Program

May 19, 2021

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kinetic by Windstream, a long-trusted community partner for high-speed internet, announced today that it will donate $5,000 to a scholarship fund with the nonprofit A Million Thanks that benefits the children of fallen military service members. The donation is part of Kinetic’s partnership with A Million Thanks celebrating Military Appreciation Month in May.

“Every American owes a debt of gratitude to those who have died in service to our country,” said Angel Ramos, president of Kinetic’s veteran employee resource group. “Providing some assistance to the children of these men and women, who are pursuing higher education, is important to us as veterans who are employed here and also as a company to show our support.”

Earlier this month, the company announced that every Kinetic retail store will serve as a collection site for anyone to drop off thank-you notes for active duty service members. Kinetic will also hold community events throughout its 18-state footprint during the month of May to collect handwritten thank-you notes. A Million Thanks will distribute the letters to service members.

“Unfortunately, the war on terrorism doesn’t come without a cost,” said Shauna Fleming, founder and CEO of A Million Thanks. “We feel it is our duty to provide assistance to the families left behind. Our education fund is for the children of those fallen heroes and it is just a small way to say ‘thank you’ for the ultimate sacrifice.”
