Writing functions in packages that define values of global variables

Is there a way to have functions inside packages define global
variables?

Specifically, is there a way to have a function that imports a data set
and then cuts it up and defines the pieces as variables that I can
access with other functions I've written in a notebook.

For instance, if I always want it to take the dates from the data and
define them as variable called Dates or whatever.
