GOOD NEWS: Donation

Grande Communications, the Texas-based broadband communications company, recently presented the West Texas Food Bank with a $2,700 check. This donation is part of Grande’s employee philanthropy club, Grande Cares, where employees seek to enhance the communities where they provide service and where they live, work and play. WTFB is the largest collaborative non-profit agency in the Permian Basin and proudly distributes food to children, families and seniors in 19 counties across 34,000 square miles. They work to continually improve the quantity, variety and nutritional quality of foods offered to agencies for distribution to low-income individuals and families in need. In addition to grants, Grande Cares drives much of Grande’s culture of giving through annual company-wide summer food drives and holiday outreach initiatives in each local market. Since the founding of the Club in 2000, they have awarded more than $3 million in grants, donated thousands of holiday gifts to those in need and collected tons of food for banks and pantries across Texas.
