Through a companywide Week of Giving campaign, TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) is increasing its philanthropic activities this holiday season. One of the company’s core values is giving back to the communities it serves through TDS Cares initiatives. The giving events will be held throughout TDS communities from Monday, November 27, through Friday, Dec. 1.
“Now more than ever, it’s important that we help TDS communities thrive,” said Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs Drew Petersen. “We hope this week will inspire others to give back to their communities throughout the holiday season.”
In Fort Carson, Eaton, Estes Park, Johnstown, Milliken, and Wellington, here are the TDS activities:
• On Cyber/STEM Monday, TDS is donating a projector and a sound bar for the student lounge at Fort Carson Middle School.
• On Giving Tuesday, TDS will be donating toys to the Eaton Police Department for its toy drive.
• On Wellness Wednesday, TDS will donate nebulizers and canes to the Estes Park Hospital for patients in need.

• On Food Pantry Friday, TDS is donating $300 worth of food to the River of Life Church Food Bank in Wellington.
“TDS associates are excited for the Week of Giving,” said Senior Manager of Field Marketing Brenda Cody. “Whether it’s honoring our first responders or volunteering at a food pantry, our field marketing associates have found effective and creative ways to serve their communities.”
TDS Cares initiatives occur throughout the year, and through the Be Good Citizens program, TDS provides associates with 16 hours of paid time off every year to volunteer at the 501c3 organization of their choice.
