Altice USA, parent company of Suddenlink, has always had a unique responsibility to serve the communities they have a presence in. Over the course of the last year and a half, it’s become more apparent than ever that giving back to communities goes beyond providing a product and service.
That is why in 2020 Altice partnered with the Coalition to Back Black Businesses to award local Black-owned businesses with $5,000 grants that they needed to continue to serve their customers at a time when they needed it most.
This summer, it was announced that the Coalition to Back Black Businesses provided $25,000 enhancement grants to 25 of original $5,000 grant recipients.
Altice USA was proud to provide the funding for five of those businesses across its footprint, including L & R Human Resources Consulting in Bossier City, LA.
This enhancement grant of $25,000, following the first grant of $5,000, will allow L & R Human Resources Consulting to continue their YOU Matter Program initiative, their specialized motivational workshop to help attendees explore their uniqueness and determine their purpose. It will also allow the business to purchase promotional products and ad/marketing supplies to help the business grow.
In addition to the grant, Suddenlink has provided mentoring services to the company that have allowed the owner to participate in a 10-month program to learn about building finances, participate in business software training and networking opportunities- allowing them to set long-term realistic business goals for growth.
