Community Involvement is at the Heart of D & P Communications

“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.” That quote from Herman Melville captures the D & P Communications philosophy – both literally and figuratively!

Not only do we spend our time laying fiber network throughout our community, but we also invest in building connections with our customers and our neighbors.

D & P Communications is a local company that has been in business for over 120 years. What began as a vision to bring telephone service to rural farmers has evolved into a cutting-edge technology company bringing Internet, TV, and phone services to Lenawee and Monroe Counties.

Our history is deeply rooted in this community. D & P Communications is dedicated to modernizing the infrastructure and improving the lives of the people in the communities we serve.

Supporting Schools and Non-Profit Organizations

There are many organizations that are doing good work and are in need of support. Having a constant presence in the community, we are often approached with requests for funding. Sometimes we become aware of a community need through our employees and their networks. We always try to help out however we can.

D & P Communications has supported and partnered with over 200 local organizations and associations, including:

Many of the community organizations we support are also our customers. For example, D & P Communications supplies the fiber optic cables for the Lenawee Intermediate School District, but our involvement extends way beyond a typical customer-vendor relationship.

We support the students in many ways. D & P has created a scholarship program for high school seniors in all of the high schools in our service area. We also support the athletic boosters by purchasing food and drink vouchers at football games, donating to after-prom events for the students, and sponsoring many community recreational programs.

Sponsoring Festivals and Community Events

At D & P Communications, we want our customers to feel connected to us. We want people to know that we are more than just an Internet, TV, and phone service provider. We are also part of the communities we serve, and we care about what happens here.

One of the ways we reach out and connect with our community is through the many festivals and events that take place throughout the year. These events are a time when people can come out and get to know each other, while also enjoying all of the wonderful food, drinks, and activities that Lenawee and Monroe Counties have to offer.

D & P Communications proudly sponsors and supports all of these local events:

Not only do we sponsor these events, but D & P Communications also has a strong presence throughout the events. We want to come out and get to know our neighbors.

Encouraging Employee Involvement

Because our employees live and work in the communities we serve, they often attend festivals and community events with their families. We have heard time and time again that one of the reasons our employees like working for D & P Communications is our strong sense of community involvement and our culture of giving back.

Our employees also appreciate opportunities where they can volunteer and get their hands dirty. D & P Communications was honored to be involved in building a home for a local family through Habitat for Humanity in Adrian. It is truly inspiring to be a part of that sort of transformation. We hope to provide more opportunities to get involved like that in the future.

At the end of the day, it is all about community. As a local company, we play a part in making sure our community is thriving. Our kids go to school here. Our families attend church here. And we want to make sure that Lenawee and Monroe Counties continue to be a wonderful place to live and work.

As D & P Communications has grown, so has our involvement in the community. We are meeting more people and learning about more opportunities every day. And we look forward to deepening our involvement in the community as time goes on.
