A Global Company with a Small Town Heart
The leadership of RNK Communications believes that big ambitions and a global presence aren’t enough to make a company great. As RNK has extended its presence and risen in stature, the company has maintained deep roots in the local community. The small-town spirit of caring and generosity is still very much alive at RNK. The company continually strives to find new ways to be a good neighbor. Its support of charitable organizations, such as Ronald MacDonald House, Little Brothers of the Poor, and Friends of the Elderly attests its broad and inclusive sense of social responsibility. From blood donation, toy drives, and support for recreational sports teams to helping a group of kids raise money for a pet’s surgery, service to others is fundamental to the workplace culture of RNK.
Massachusetts Association of the Blind
The leadership at RNK Communications believes in giving back to its home community of Massachusetts. In partnership with Vision Community Services (VCS), a division of the Massachusetts Association of the Blind (MAB), the company has established two voice services dedicated to enriching the lives of visually impaired individuals. VCS Connections and Newsline provide community information and readings of local newspapers, as well as grocery coupons, to help visually impaired people stay active and involved in their local communities.

RNK is proud of its long-term partnership with the USO. The company supports the USO’s efforts to sustain the morale of men and women in uniform with a number of free calling programs for military personnel. Over the years, RNK has continued to find new opportunities to use its expertise in next-generation technologies to help members of the armed forces stay connected with loved ones and the larger military community. In October 2006, RNK equipped the USO website with an interactive discussion forum, USO New England Talk.™ New England Talk enables military personnel and their families to share their concerns with a worldwide support network of their peers. Other outreach efforts include RNK’s Connect for Freedom Plan, which provides unlimited free calling to families and friends of active duty members stationed away from home. The company also supplies patients at local Veterans Hospitals with free call cards.
