Helping the Bay

For the third consecutive year, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Jones Communications, which offers cable television programming in Prince George's County, will work on an initiative campaign to raise money for and attract new members to the foundation's efforts. Jones Communications has been working with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation since 1997. During the last two summers, the company has donated $98,300 to the foundation and has helped the nonprofit attract new members.

The 1999 campaign, which takes place this month, will be similar to those of the previous years, with Jones Communications donating $10 to the foundation for every new customer added and $5 for every current customer who upgrades to premium service during the month. In appreciation for customer participation in the June campaign, Jones will provide to all new and upgrading customers a one-year membership with the foundation. In addition to Jones, Home Box Office also is supporting the effort by providing about 25 percent of the funding for the campaign.
