Community Connections: Ice Bucket Challenge, Partying for a Purpose

Employees from TDS have been busy making strong community connections through their good works and efforts. Here are a few recent examples:

Party For a Purpose

All of the money raised by the non-profit stays in the community to help cancer patients. TDS manager Chad H., also dyed his hair and put glitter in it to show his support.

TDS Telecom employees Kim H., Bo N., Sherry S., Terri F. and Sue C. all helped with this year’s event.

TDS employees raise $1,600 for charities
TDS manager, Jeff M., recently held a meeting with his team. In Jeff’s words he wanted to “shake things up.” So, he encouraged his team to donate to the charity of their choice.

Total the group raised $1,600. As a reward for the team’s generosity, Jeff and other managers let their direct reports douse them in ice cold water.
