WCCTA is proud of the community-minded efforts of the volunteers that make up fire departments across our service area. In addition WCCTA supports the Gowrie Department by allowing these employees to leave during area emergencies.
The Aureon Charity Grant Program was established to increase service and support to rural independent telephone companies and the communities they serve. Applications are considered on a quarterly basis and available to organizations within the WCCTA service area.
