UScellular Visits Quad Cities Organizations with Donations
Company Spreads Locally Grown Joy to Support Humility Homes & Services, East Moline Police Department, Brantley Francis Founda
To celebrate the holiday season and the meaningful value of community, UScellular has donated items to Humility Homes & Services in Davenport, the East Moline Police Department and Brantley Francis Foundation in Geneseo, Illinois.
 
In order to bring locally-grown joy to the Quad Cities, UScellular worked with its local team to learn about the needs of the community, then reached out to each organization to obtain its ideal wish list. Traveling in a holiday-themed truck, the company delivered:
  • $5,000 in housing supplies, personal care items and gift cards to Humility Homes & Services that will help families at the shelter.
  • a $500 gift card for kids who participate in East Moline’s “Shop with a Cop” event.
  • a $500 gift card for Brantley Francis Foundation bags.
 These gifts are among more than 70 donations UScellular will make to help connect with its local communities and spread joy this holiday season.
 
“Giving back to the people and organizations that make the Quad Cities an area we are proud to call home is what this season is all about,” UScellular Area Sales Manager Mike Richards said. “Especially after last year, it is a true joy to celebrate and connect with the organizations that make our community special.”
 
Through this initiative, organizations from hospitals to local Boys & Girls Clubs will receive a little extra cheer. Gifts range from toys for children to food donations for local homeless shelters.
 
In addition to community gifts, UScellular has a sweepstakes where $10,000 will go to the winner and another $10,000 will go to the Science, Technology, Education and Math (STEM) program of the winner’s choice at locallygrownjoy.uscellular.com.
 
UScellular has a longstanding commitment to supporting its local communities through donations and volunteerism. Since 2009, the company has donated more than $20.9 million along with countless experiences and technology items to nonprofit organizations across the country.
