AWC Named Community Business Partner of the Year

Advanced Wireless Communications was recently named “Community Business Partner of the Year” by the Lakeville Chamber of Commerce. They were nominated for this award by the City of Lakeville for the support the company gave to the city and community last year.

“It was our honor to nominate Ken Coons and Advanced Wireless Communications for this year’s Chamber of Commerce’s Community Business Partner of the Year award. It’s hard to remember that at the beginning of the pandemic, supplies such as hand sanitizer, protective gloves and face masks were in short supply, even for our police and fire department. Ken Coons immediately stepped up and provided access to his supply chain providers to get us this critical protective equipment to help keep our staff and the entire community safe.” said Justin Miller, Lakeville City Administrator.

Advanced Wireless Communications believes in serving the community and has worked hard over the years to step up to help, especially in times of need. Last year when the pandemic hit, AWC got to work:

  • Provided masks to the Lakeville Police Department and assisted with sourcing spray bottles for use in disinfecting police cars.
  • Supplied the Lakeville Schools with masks for their graduation celebrations.
  • Worked with Lakeville Cares by connecting helpers with those in need.
  • Donated use of a vehicle and trailer to support the Toys for Tots campaign and the feeding of families for Christmas.
  • Donated masks, rubber gloves, Clorox wipes, and hand sanitizer to 360 Communities (a non-profit organization serving Dakota County).
  • Worked with Cub Foods to supply 360 Communities with boxes and bags.
  • Donated AWC call boxes and radios to help with curbside service to local restaurants.
  • Sourced elastics for non-profits that were making masks.
  • Donated tens of thousands of masks to various businesses and organizations.

We are proud to continue our tradition and commitment to serving our community and are honored to accept this award.
