A LOOK BACK AT CHARITABLE GIVING

Giving something back to our communities has always been an important core value for Consumer Cellular. From the beginning, we’ve looked for ways to use our success to make a positive difference in the world around us.

As we’ve grown over the years, we’ve made it a tradition to recognize significant corporate milestones by giving to charities in the name of our customers and employees. In August, we donated $350,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to commemorate earning our 3.5 millionth customer.

In 2018, to commemorate earning our three millionth customer, we donated $3 million shared with our employees and 3 charities selected by them: Meals on Wheels America, Providence Cancer Institute and Shriners Hospitals for Children each received $500,000.

We also strive for ways to regularly give back in the communities where we’re located. We fund a local community giving committee at each of our locations that selects non-profit, human-focused groups nominated by our employees for support each quarter. This year, we were pleased to provide more than $680,000 to a wide variety of worthwhile organizations offering services and programs that benefit families, children, and those less fortunate.

During the past year, Consumer Cellular employees also volunteered nearly 2,500 hours to help out food pantries in our corporate locations in Portland, OR; Redmond, OR; and Phoenix, AZ. We’ve also mobilized quarterly volunteer service nights at these facilities for many years now, which draw tremendous participation from our team.

As we reflect on our charitable giving for the past year, we want to once again offer a sincere thanks to you, our loyal customers, for allowing us so many opportunities to make a difference. We’re truly humbled by your continued support, and deeply honored to help others on your behalf.
