CALDWELL, Idaho – In recognition of National Farmworker Appreciation efforts in April and the upcoming National Farmworker Women’s Health Week, TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) has donated needed supplies to the Community Council of Idaho.

The donation of 300 pairs of gloves, lip balm, water bottles, and cooling towels will assist farmworkers working in Idaho crops and calls attention to the health risks that women farmworkers face. A formal presentation was made Tuesday, May 14, at the Community Council of Idaho’s Caldwell office.
