Aureon is pleased to announce that an Aureon Charity Grant has been awarded to Hawkins Memorial Library. As a result of the grant, the library has new mobile DVD carts that make it easier for patrons to browse the many DVD titles available for checkout. The grant was presented in conjunction with LPC Connect, who sponsored the grant application. Aureon, the new name for Iowa Network Services, created the grant program in 1993 to increase service and support to rural independent telecommunications companies and the communities they serve. The Aureon Charity Grant Program awards grants on a quarterly basis. Over the course of twelve years, Aureon has donated over $850,000 to local communities and their surrounding areas. Each proposal that is chosen by our Grant Committee reflects the organization’s enthusiasm for serving their communities.
