Community First

FairPoint and its employees have a long tradition of partnering and supporting the communities where we provide communication services. 

We put communities first by coordinating blood drives, fighting hunger and sponsoring programs that address community needs.



United Way/Employee Giving Campaign

FairPoint is a proud corporate sponsor of the United Way. Our employees increase participation and giving every year. They also help raise money through auctions, bake sales, walkathons, road races and more.

American Red Cross

FairPoint supports the American Red Cross. Our drives regularly produce nearly 2,500 blood donations a year. 

Food Drives

FairPoint donates food and time to local pantries, as much as 25,000 pounds of food a year.

Employees also volunteer time and food to Ronald MacDonald House and other local shelters.

Health & Wellness

FairPoint invests in the health and wellness of employees, their families and customers. We support programs from cancer and heart research to healthy eating and wellness walks. Our employees are eager to make a difference in our communities, enthusiastically supporting these activities.

Volunteerism

Volunteerism is ingrained in the FairPoint culture. The FairPoint Pioneers are employees and retirees who help make up the world's largest industry-sponsored volunteer membership organization. The FairPoint Pioneers have donated 50,000 hours towards community outreach.
