Arvig contest benefits local food shelves

Arvig announces that their holiday coloring contest was a success with children and their parents.

The contest asked children to color a picture, which they could pick up at their local Arvig store or download from and then return to Arvig. In exchange for the childrens' participation, Arvig donated $1 to a local food shelf.

A total of 811 children participated, raising $811. Arvig is matching that amount, so a total of $1,622 will be sent to food shelves throughout the Arvig service area.

"We're very happy to match this donation and proud to have so many participants throughout our service area. The kids did a great job," said COO-Vice President David Arvig.

The holiday coloring contest entries can be seen on Arvig's Facebook page, and on Community Connection, channel 14 at 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

In addition, 75 children were chosen at random to receive prizes for their entries.

Arvig is a full-service telecommunications provider. In addition to high-speed Internet access, television and phone service, Arvig also provides computer repair services, business telephone systems, security, Verizon wireless phones and service, and more.
