Fidelity Awards $2,500 to Imagination Library of West Plains

March 3, 2023 – West Plains, Mo. –
Fidelity Communications recently awarded a $2,500 grant to Imagination Library of West Plains through Cable One’s Charitable Giving Fund. Twenty-eight non-profit organizations across Cable One’s 24-state footprint received grants totaling more than $110,000 during the company’s most recent award period.


Launched in 1995 by philanthropist, singer-songwriter and actress Dolly Parton, the Imagination Library mails books to more than a million children from birth to age five every year, regardless of their family’s income, in order to encourage literacy, kindergarten readiness, and a life-long love of reading. Launched in 2015, the West Plains Imagination Library is run by Heart of the Ozarks United Way. Dependent entirely on donations, the West Plains program currently serves 240 children and plans to expand its outreach.


“The board of directors for the Imagination Library of West Plains is extremely grateful to receive this grant, which will pay for five months of age-appropriate books for children,” said Stacy Tintocalis, Executive Director of Heart of the Ozarks United Way. “Two-hundred-and-forty children ages five and under will receive one free book each month. That’s a total of 1,200 books to promote literacy, parental bonding, and pre-school preparedness. This is especially impactful among the economically disadvantaged families in our program where Imagination Library books are the only age-appropriate books in the home.”



The Charitable Giving Fund, which annually awards nearly $250,000 in grants to local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations served by the Cable One family of brands (Sparklight®, Fidelity Communications, Hargray, ValuNet Fiber and CableAmerica), concentrates support in the following priority areas:


Nonprofit organizations have the opportunity to apply for a grant during open application periods each spring and fall. Applications for spring 2023 grants will open between April 1-30, 2023.


The Charitable Giving Fund is an extension of the company’s existing corporate social responsibility efforts, which include:
