“Our team has shown a commitment to making the Greater Cincinnati community a better place to live and work,” says Alli Stevens, CEO of Powernet. “To see so many team members come together and work on projects like the community Wi-Fi expansions or taking time out of their day to assist a non-profit organization year after year is inspiring. Powernet is lucky to have so many employees that care about making a difference and are willing to take the steps to make their ideas a reality.”
The Powernet team made an impact on hundreds of individuals throughout 2019 through a variety of projects, sponsorships and donations.

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.
