APPLETON, Wisconsin – TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) has presented a donation of backpacks to help residents of the Wisconsin Veterans Village.

The donation took place Tuesday, March 21, at the Veterans Village, 2919 W. Glenpark Drive, Appleton. The backpacks were requested to help residents pick up groceries and other needed items in their day-to-day lives.

“As we sought ways to help our veterans and the Wisconsin Veterans Village, backpacks arose as a big need. The Veterans Village provides exceptional service for our veterans, and we’re proud to support them in any way we can,” said Pam Litscher, TDS associate manager of Field Marketing in Appleton.
