April 29, 2020
What would normally be the start to a busy springtime has turned out to be vastly different from what anyone could have predicted. The communities where our employees live, work, and play have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The academic school year came to halt, families can only travel for essential needs, and many businesses have had to shut their doors.
As Tenere stays open as an essential business manufacturing telecommunications infrastructure and medical devices, we recognize the need to not only keep our employees safe but also support our broader communities so life can one day return to normal. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Tenere has invested over $45,000 in our local communities through donations and local gift cards.
Health and Safety of Employees
Tenere’s number one priority is always the health and safety of our employees. As news started to break of COVID-19 reaching North America, we immediately began implementing safety measures at all of our facilities including social distancing, temperature checks, and increased frequency of cleaning. We are immensely proud of how our employees have banded together to support each other and create a safe environment for all.
$10,000 Donation to Osceola Medical Center
On April 28, Tenere donated $10,000 to the Osceola Medical Center in Osceola, WI as part of the community’s annual giveBIG - St. Croix Valley, which raises funds for local nonprofits. The donation will support the medical center in purchasing much needed life-saving ventilators and other medical equipment as they fight COVID-19. With this donation and a matching fund that doubles the donation, the Osceola Medical Center will be able to purchase one new ventilator.
Local Business Gift Cards
Tenere is supporting the communities of Westminster, CO, Dresser, WI, and Osceola, WI during this challenging time by purchasing gift cards from local businesses in the area and awarding them to our employees. Businesses we have supported include local markets, restaurants, and garden centers.
