PMT in the Community
PMT is committed to serving the residents of Southern Idaho, and our dedication to this area is fundamental to who we are as a customer-owned company. Unlike our national competitors, we care about more than just making a profit. We care about making a difference. Here are some recent contributions PMT has made in the community:
Twin Falls Archway
A 113-foot, 30-ton steel arch that looks like the Perrine Bridge was recently installed over Shoshone Street in Twin Falls. The archway has electronic displays that show messages, notifications and welcomes people to Twin Falls. PMT was happy to donate the fiber-optic cable and labor to make the brains of the display work. By doing so, the City can link it back to their vast network connected by PMT Internet to update the sign remotely from their office building.
Business Plus – $10,000
PMT recently donated $10,000 to Business Plus. For over 30 years, Business Plus has joined with like-minded leaders to grow our economy through private donations. Through a team effort, Business Plus works with the Southern Idaho Economic Development Organization, CSI, the State of Idaho, and local cities and counties. They’ve developed a unique model for economic development that has helped attract new businesses like Choboni, Clif Bar Baking Company, Fabri-Kal, and Dow Chemical. PMT has seen first-hand the benefits of attracting new businesses to our area because many of the new businesses that relocate to our area end up turning to PMT for their communication needs.
“We are grateful to have PMT as a partner in strengthening our economy by supporting job growth throughout the Southern Idaho region,” stated Rebecca Wildman, Business Plus Executive Director.
Rupert 4th of July – $5,000
PMT has once again committed to be a major donor to the Rupert 4th of July Celebration. The money will be used for the free entertainment and concerts in the Rupert Square.
“On behalf of the Rupert 4th of July Committee, I thank PMT for their continued support. We know we can always count on PMT to help us put on a spectacular 4th of July Celebration for everyone to enjoy. We are so grateful to have a community-minded company like PMT that goes the extra mile to give back,” said Alan Johnson, Rupert 4th of July Committee Member.
Annual QRU Fundraiser – $400
This event is put together to offer appreciation, and some much-needed financial support, for local heroes. All of the proceeds raised will be divided equally among nine local Magic Valley Quick Response Units. This family-friendly event is scheduled for July 19th and a schedule can be found at www.qrufundraiser.org
Minico American Legion Baseball – $150
This donation secures PMT’s logo at Warburton field during the season. More importantly, it gives the American Legion Baseball team’s funds a boost to help with field maintenance and defray costs incurred by the team.
