UScellular Visits Ames Organization with Donation
Company Spreads Locally Grown Joy to Support Ames Police Foundation
AMES, Iowa (Dec. 6, 2021) – To celebrate the holiday season and the meaningful value of community, UScellular has made a donation to the Ames Police Foundation.
In order to bring locally-grown joy to central Iowa, UScellular worked with its local team to learn about the needs of the community, then reached out to organizations to obtain their ideal wish list. Traveling in a holiday-themed truck, the company delivered gift cards for kids to participate in the Shop with a Cop event.
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 central Iowa an area we are proud to call home is what this season is all about,” UScellular West Iowa Director of Sales Monique Moore said. “Especially after last year, it is a true joy to celebrate and connect with the organizations that make our community special.”
The Ames Police Foundation provides Shop with a Cop, back-to-school supplies and other charitable giving to the community.
Through UScellular’s Locally Grown Joy 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.
