Powernet recently received its 9th Pillar Award for Community Service at the Medical Mutual Pillar Awards.
This award honors businesses of all types and sizes that make outstanding contributions to their communities. Its purpose is to encourage a charitable environment, recognize creative efforts that make a difference and demonstrate the ties between the for-profit and nonprofit worlds. Powernet was one of 11 local Cincinnati businesses honored at the event.
The Powernet team made an impact on hundreds of individuals throughout 2019 through a variety of projects, sponsorships, and donations. The year began with the completion of wireless expansions to both Avondale and Lower Price Hill. Donations of tablets, networking, and voice equipment were made to a variety of local organizations such as Life Church Amelia, City Gospel Mission, Cincinnati Rotary Club, and Norwood Schools.
A Crock-Pot-A-Thon was also organized in association with the community learning center in Lower Price Hill to provide residents with access to crock pots and rolling carts that allowed them to transport and cook healthier meals.
Powernet’s donations reached even further than just the Cincinnati community. Tablets were donated to Children’s Miracle Home in India to help educate the children that reside there. Additionally, Powernet donated and provided desktop computers and furniture for the home to create a computer lab that will allow it to further its mission. Powernet’s tradition of giving is also echoed in it’s Florida offices as well where a variety of donations were made to local organizations and charities, including many in need of relief following devastating hurricanes.
