This just in! U.S. Cellular has *generously* committed to a charitable gift of $1 million to fund classroom projects in the markets where it does business as a part of its Calling All Teachers campaign.
“Teachers go above and beyond for children every day, while extra funding for classrooms is in short supply,” said Karen Ehlers, vice president of public affairs and communications for U.S. Cellular. “With Calling All Teachers, we want to help alleviate some of the budget worries of teachers, who on average spend about $1,200 out of their own pockets each year on basic student supplies.”
We want to thank U.S. Cellular for their tremendous support of public schools across the country!
