TDS Telecommunications (BendBroadband) has donated $10,000 to The Giving Plate in Bend.
“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.
TDS donated a total of $65,000 to food banks in five communities they serve. In addition to The Giving Plate in Bend, TDS donated to: Second Harvest Foodbank of East Tennessee, Second Harvest Food Bank of Southern Wisconsin, The Utah Food Bank in St. George, Utah, and The Christian Mission in Mooresville, North Carolina.
