Ganado Telephone Company proudly supports the communities we serve in a variety of ways. This support ranges from providing jobs with competitive salaries and benefits in rural areas to donating needed goods and services to our local schools.
Ganado Telephone Company is an active member of the Jackson County, Louise/Hillje, El Campo, and Wharton Chamber of Commerce. Not only do we keep an active membership, but we have representation on these various boards in order to provide input on economic growth within our communities. We also support the local chapters of the American Cancer Society through corporate sponsorships and team participation in the Relay for Life events. Other groups and organizations that benefit from our corporate sponsorships and the donation of goods or services include: Little League teams, youth football leagues, volunteer fire departments, 4-H clubs, hospice, Helping Hands, Rotary Clubs, Lions Clubs, American Legion, and local animal shelters. Many of Ganado Telephone Company’s employees are active members in these organizations.
The youth of our communities is one category that receives particular support from Ganado Telephone Company. Because our service area is in a heavily agricultural region, we donate generously to the county youth fairs and rodeos through corporate sponsorship, auction purchases, and vendor booths. This helps educate our youth and prepare them to thrive economically in these rural areas. We also contribute regularly to our local schools through donations, sponsorships, and participation that benefits the following:
- Project graduation celebrations
- Band booster fundraiser events
- Summer reading programs
- Cheerleading camps
- Athletic booster club fundraiser events
- Bicycle programs
- Book covers with safety tips
- Newspapers in Education program
- Drill team programs
In addition, the owners of Ganado Telephone Company and YK Communications have formed the Young Family Foundation, which supports the youth in our area through a scholarship program and grants to local organizations.
