Cable ONE Hero of the Week

Alex Morong, Sparklight

Morong, a Lead IP Specialist who works in Sparklight’s Phoenix, AZ, corporate office, responded to requests for masks from local hospitals that are running low on protective gear and solicited donations from the community. Since March 16, Morong and his family members have made an average of 100 masks a week, which they have donated to local hospitals for use by frontline doctors and nurses. In addition to donating masks to Quail Run Hospital, Hospice of the Valley, Honor Health Deer Valley, and Banner Thunderbird, the Morong family has created an instructional video that they shared on YouTube to teach others how to make masks with filters. They plan to continue lending their sewing expertise to help Valley hospitals and medical facilities as long as they are able to secure supplies.
