We Are Shentel
Shentel is a company with a philanthropic spirit stretching back to its earliest days. Significant donations of funds, time and materials are given to the communities we serve as evidence of Shentel’s desire to create deeper connections.
In 2014, Shentel Community Connections (SCC) was introduced as the official philanthropic arm of the company. The SCC finds and coordinates projects for Team Shentel, the orange-shirted squad of employee volunteers who are always ready to pitch in for projects like Adopt-A-Highway in Edinburg, VA and Weston, WV. The Summer Backpack Program donated more than a ton and a half of food to children, and during the holidays, 52 teams participated in The Big Give by adopting families and providing them with everything from clothing and toys to food and supplies.
In October 2015, Shentel employees will participate in a rehabilitation of community parks. In addition to contributing new playground equipment, benches and the like, Shentel employees are going to shovel mulch, paint fences, landscape play areas and give much-needed care and attention to these sources of community life.
SCC opportunities extend and build office relationships. Executives, customer service representatives, store managers, supervisors, directors, technicians – all categories of Shentel employees – volunteer side by side as teammates to make a positive difference in the communities we serve. The sense of pride that accompanies giving is very alive at Shentel.
