Charitable Giving – Going the Extra Mile

GEM_LogoA new way to give back.

In 2014, Connectivity Point introduced a new charitable campaign—Going the Extra Mile.
The idea was simple: for every mile we drive, we donate a penny.

Our beneficiaries were selected from a brief application and employee suggestions.
All of these groups go the extra mile for people where we work and live.

The results are in! 
Our technicians drove over 430,000 miles in 2015 which means that our beneficiaries will each receive $1,000!

Going the Extra Mile—it’s how Connectivity Point does business, and its how we show support
for some great causes.
