U.S. Cellular recently made a $5,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia to provide K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational opportunities to youth at a special check presentation ceremony on May 17. This is part of a $1 million donation to clubs across the country and the fourth year U.S. Cellular has funded 53 Boys & Girls Clubs to provide academic and after school enrichment programs, with a focus on STEM programming.
“U.S. Cellular is committed to enhancing youth learning experiences in our local communities and proud to continue working with the Boys & Girls Clubs of SW VA to invest in our future leaders,” said Nathan Waddell, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in the Mid-South. “Throughout the year, we strive to provide youth with unique, interactive opportunities, which showcase real-world applications for STEM careers.”
U.S. Cellular has a longstanding commitment to the community and education. The company has contributed more than $10.65 million to K-12 education since 2009. In 2017, U.S. Cellular associates volunteered at more than 185 events and are committed to volunteering 35,000 hours in local communities again this year.
