What is Co-Mo’s Connect to Help charitable campaign? In 2020, Co-Mo Connect initiated the Connect to Help charitable campaign as another way to give back to the community and lend a helping hand to local charities that are actively improving the lives of area citizens in need.
How does the Connect to Help Campaign work? In May and November of each year, Co-Mo Connect donates $35 to local charities for each new Internet subscriber during the respective month. New subscribers get $50 off their installation fee as a “thank you” for being a Co-Mo Connect customer and participating in the campaign. Existing subscribers are encouraged to help by donating to any of the charities Co-Mo Connect has helped during the campaign’s four-year existence (see below).
How much has Co-Mo Connect raised for local charities with Connect to Help? Since 2020, Co-Mo Connect has raised more than $100,000 for local charities.
How does Co-Mo Connect choose the charities that will receive the Connect to Help campaign donation? In May, three community charities are chosen by employees, members, and subscribers. In November, Co-Mo Connect chooses one veterans’ charity for the donation. In May, Co-Mo Connect takes nominations for 501 (c)(3) charities from employees, subscribers, and members via its digital communication channels during the month. You can also nominate a charity for Connect to HelpHERE. The nominated charities who will receive the May donation are chosen by a vote of Co-Mo Connect employees.
Which local charities has Co-Mo Connect helped? Co-Mo Connect has made donations through the Connect to Help program to The Food Bank of Northeast and Central Missouri, Moniteau County Christian Center, Share the Harvest, The Lake of the Ozarks’ Idiots Club/Jesters of Goodwill, and Quality Industries. This November, we will add Central Missouri Honor Flight to this list.
