TDS donates $65,000 to 5 food banks in local service areas

TDS Telecommunications has donated $65,000 to five food pantries that serve our regional areas.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Southern Wisconsin has received a $25,000 donation, while Second Harvest East Tennessee in Knoxville, The Giving Plate in Bend, Oregon, The Utah Food Bank in St. George, Utah, and The Mooresville/Lake Norman Christian Mission in Mooresville, North Carolina have all received $10,000 each.

“The call to help has never been greater and TDS wants to do what we can to feed America now by giving back to the communities we serve,” said TDS President and CEO Jim Butman. “Food banks across the country are seeing huge increases in demand as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and, TDS wants to help those organizations who are serving those in need.”

Monetary donations are used to purchase food products in bulk or at wholesale prices, which provides more meals.
