Business briefs for Sunday, Jan. 22

Shenandoah Telecommunications Co.

EDINBURG, Va. — Shenandoah Telecommunications Co. (Shentel) held its third annual holiday initiative, “The Big Give,” in December, and more than doubled the amount raised and people served over the previous year. Employees raised $25,000 and helped more than 700 individuals in communities served by Shentel in Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Kentucky.

During The Big Give, Shentel employees create teams and choose a project to work on in their communities. Many chose to adopt families for the holiday season, providing them with everything from clothing and toys to food. Other teams did volunteer work, adopted nursing homes, purchased supplies for humane societies and animal shelters, and served as collection spots for area charities.

To raise money for these efforts, employees made individual contributions to their teams, held bake sales and silent auctions, and participated in a company-wide raffle for items contributed, and in some cases handcrafted, by employees.
