HTC Employee Funds Help to Adopt and Feed Families for the Holidays

Friday, December 18th, 2020

Horry Telephone Cooperative, Inc. (HTC) employees worked to support six local food banks and partnered with The Salvation Army to adopt several Horry County families through the holidays.

HTC employees collected non-perishable food items and donated $7,200 to six local food banks. The financial support, distributed evenly amongst the non-profit organizations, was collected through the Employee Jeans Day Fund.

In addition, HTC employees funded the purchase of Christmas gifts for 17 children from five local families, identified by The Salvation Army.

“HTC understands the needs of our community during the holiday season, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Leslie Causey, HTC public relations coordinator. “Employees of the Cooperative are committed to supporting organizations to ensure the youth and families in our area get to experience the magic of Christmas.”

The Salvation Army is now accepting monetary donations to purchase gifts for the Angels who weren’t adopted this holiday season.

“We would like to thank HTC for their contribution and efforts this year in filling many Angel Tree tags and providing Christmas gifts to several families for 2020,” said Jerry Williams, The Salvation Army Corps business manager.

In the spirit of the Cooperative, HTC is proud to support and partner with local non-profits, especially during the holidays and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. To learn more about how HTC is connecting with its community, contact Leslie Causey at 843-369-8564, or email
