Cell carrier supports positive youth efforts

On Giving Tuesday, for the sixth consecutive year, US Cellular kicked off The Future of Good program, highlighting young people who are helping create positive change in their local communities through projects including protection of the environment and expansion of education and literacy.

Until Dec. 31, anyone over the age of 18 is encouraged to nominate youth ages 6-17 who are making a positive impact in their communities. At the end of the nomination phase, the company will announce three winners. This year, three young heroes will receive a $10,000 contribution to support their respective cause.

“For the past six years, US Cellular has been committed to championing and supporting youth who have made a positive impact in their community,” said Matt Kasper, director of sales for US Cellular in New England. “These young heroes are all around us and UScellular is right there to showcase them, to invest in them and to support them to continue to do good.”

For more information or to nominate a young person, those who are 18 or older should go to thefutureofgood.uscellular.com and describe the nominee’s cause, how it is helping their community and how the nominee could use a cash award to continue to grow their efforts.
