King Street Wireless in the Community
King Street Wireless is dedicated to contributing to its local community of Alexandria, Virginia and the communities it serves.
KSW is one of the founding members of Spring for Alexandria, a celebration of giving back. Launched in 2007, Spring for Alexandria has engaged thousands of volunteers to support hundreds of Alexandria-based charities. Spring for Alexandria is central to the community’s springtime culture and a model of working together for the common good by businesses, nonprofits, neighbors, youth, and government. Several events are part of Spring for Alexandria including Earth Day, Spring2Action, Volunteer Alexandria’s Business Philanthropy Summit, the Community Service Day, the City of Alexandria’s Spring Clean-up Day and Lemonaide with Kids Helping Kids.
King Street Wireless enjoys giving back to its community. It was one of the first companies to join with ACT for Alexandria for an online giving day celebrated every April in order to support the nonprofits doing incredible, life-changing work in the Alexandria community.
In 2019, Spring2Action raised over $2 million to support 162 local nonprofits. Since 2011, more than 50,000 generous donors have given more than $10 million to 160 nonprofits through Spring2ACTion, making it one of the most successful city-wide giving days in the country and ensuring that Alexandria is a strong, vibrant community for all. The next giving day is April 29, 2020!
In December, King Street Wireless (KSW) enthusiastically participated in Wreaths Across America for its third year in a row. Partnering with Alexandria’s American Heritage Girls Troop 1381 to place 134 wreaths at graves at Alexandria National Cemetery, KSW honor the memories of fallen soldiers and the sacrifices they made for our country.
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, wreath-laying ceremonies occur at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as over 1,100 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad. Its annual pilgrimage from Harrington, Maine to Arlington National Cemetery has become known as the world’s largest veterans’ parade, stopping at schools, monuments, veterans’ homes.
