TDS partners with Middleton Chamber of Commerce to support its members
It is no surprise that 2020 was a hard year for businesses in the area. The Middleton Chamber of Commerce saw this firsthand with its members. Executive Director Kate Miller shares, “Businesses have been forced to adapt to protect their employees, customers and their bottom line. Many small business’ limited budgets would not allow for membership renewal during a time when they need the advocacy, marketing, promoting, and connecting provided by our organization.” Middleton Chamber member TDS also recognized that many businesses were suffering at the hands of something they could not control and approached the Chamber to offer support to these businesses.
Knowing the value a Chamber membership can provide especially during a pandemic, TDS and Middleton Chamber developed “TDS: Keeping the Connection.” TDS provided the Chamber with funds to fully cover or lower the cost of membership for those at risk. In 2020, this partnership supported 10 members.
“TDS is a great community partner,” shares Miller. “I think it says a lot about the values of their organization when they want to support others around them this way.”
“This opportunity speaks to our core values of “investing in people” and “being a good citizen,” states Sam Abolkhair, Associate Manager of Field Marketing with TDS. “It is our pleasure to support our community and business partners.”
TDS’s support will continue with additional funds being allocated for 2021.
