TDS donates to West Valley Humane Society following months-long campaign
CALDWELL, Idaho – TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) is proud to present a donation to the West Valley Humane Society to culminate TDS’ Rescue Dog of the Month social media campaign.
On the TDS Fiber Facebook page this year, TDS spotlighted dogs at the humane society that need homes and pledged to donate $1 to the organization for every share the posts received. Today on Giving Tuesday, TDS ended the 2022 campaign by presenting a check to the Humane Society for $2,700 and highlighting the continued opportunity for pet adoptions.
“We are so grateful for the support and generosity of TDS. Their love of animals in need shows every day and we are very grateful to partner with an organization so committed to give back to their community. TDS has committed to not only helping animals by financially donating, but also using their platform to promote and support animals looking for new homes -- they go above and beyond,” said Brittany Sundell, Director of Shelter Programs.
“We’re proud to partner with an outstanding organization like the West Valley Humane Society and help pets find their forever homes. During this time of great need, we encourage the community to continue supporting the Humane Society and the animals in their care,” said Pamela Hayn, TDS associate manager of field marketing in Nampa.
The donation was made during TDS’ Week of Giving campaign, which features themed giving events throughout TDS markets from Monday, Nov. 28, through Friday, Dec. 2. More than $90,000 will be distributed to nonprofit organizations in TDS communities throughout the week. One of the company’s core values is giving back to the communities it serves through TDS Cares initiatives.
The donation comes as TDS reached a milestone in Nampa – the first local customers were connected to TDS’ all-fiber, high-speed internet network on Friday, Nov. 25. Construction on the network is also continuing in Caldwell, Meridian, Garden City, and Boise.
