Because of an association with Salt Lake area businesses, Teleconnect Co., Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has donated $2,500 to the Salt Lake Homeless Shelter.

Clark E. McLeod, president and chief executive officer of Teleconnect, said, "We hope that in its own special way, this joint effort helps meet some of the more immediate needs of the area's homeless. We feel fortunate to have been involved in a local effort like yours that addresses the real needs of the community."
