With one of the largest truck fleets in the US, CommScope has carried tons of water, food and supplies to the Gulf Coast. After hearing Wed that Cable One employees were working 15-hr days without the ability to wash their uniforms, CommScope sent nearly 300 polo shirts to the op. The vendor also has begun assisting in the rebuild, shipping more than 17 truckloads of cable. With so many evacuees headed to its home state of GA, S-A initially concentrated on helping those in the Atlanta area. VP, community relations Bill McCargo is serving on gov Sonny Perdue’s (R) "2005 GA Disaster Campaign" cabinet. The company and employees have donated more than $80K to relief efforts. Next up, S-A will be looking at how to help damage absorbed by the cable industry.
