Dear friends,

October was a busy month for T-Mobile. Preparedness and recovery during an active hurricane season were key for the company this month. We also took time to celebrate the rich and varied contributions of the Latino community. The observance of Hispanic Heritage Month, Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, provided an opportunity to reflect on powerful legacies and enduring contributions. We’re grateful for the opportunity to serve this community in partnership with so many of you. 

We were also grateful for the chance to support and participate in many events with our partners, including the National Rural Education Association Convention, the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner, and many others.

Boo careful tonight and have a Happy Halloween!
