TCC Verizon launching corporate giving program in Prescott area

TCC, the nation’s largest Verizon Authorized Retailer, is now accepting applications for grants up to $10,000 from nonprofit organizations in Prescott and Prescott Valley.

The company’s new nationwide corporate giving program, TCC Gives Inc., aims to serve people, animals and the environment in the more than 500 communities where TCC operates nationwide.

The TCC Gives board of directors will select the organizations that will receive the grants on a quarterly basis.

Nonprofits that are interested in applying for a grant must have a TCC employee sponsor their request. If an application is not chosen, the employee and/or nonprofit can submit an application the following quarter.

The local participating TCC stores are located at 150 E. Sheldon St., Suite D1113, Prescott, 254 Lee Blvd. #101, Prescott, 3250 Gateway Blvd. #330, Prescott and 3292 Glassford Hill Road, Suite D-01, Prescott Valley.

“We launched TCC Gives as a way to show our valued customers and community members how much we care about them,” said Scott Moorehead, CEO of TCC. “It is our goal to continue to grow this program and support every community where TCC operates a store.”

In addition to the grants, TCC Gives will also select two to six of its stores or areas of operation to receive funding for larger community projects on an annual basis.

For example, in March 2016, the company unveiled the TCC Rainforest Activity Center at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, an area dedicated to therapeutic play for patients and families. The room is equipped with art supplies and the latest high-tech games and gear, such as touch screen

computers, tablets and a multi-media projector.

The launch of TCC Gives falls on the heels of TCC’s donation of $250,000 to Make-A-Wish. Through its partnership with the organization, TCC is granting the wishes of 25 Make-A-Wish children across the U.S.
