U.S. Cellular’s Calling All Communities Campaign Supports Schools

Disclosure: I’m a compensated member of U.S. Cellular’s Better Moments Blogger Brigade, but all opinions are my own. I’m pleased to share news and and product information with you as part of my ongoing relationship with U.S. Cellular. 

It is that time of year again to rally your community in support of a local school. U.S. Cellular’s Calling All Communities Campaign is about to kick off its 5th year and goes from November 5th-25th while offering schools the chance to win a share of $500,000 to pay for what their students need the most. Since the program began in 2008, U.S. Cellular has awarded $4 million to 56 schools across the country. Past winners of the Calling All Communities campaign have used their winnings in a variety of ways to strengthen the learning experience for thousands of students. Here is some more information about this wonderful campaign:

  • The top 20 schools that garner the most community votes will each win $25,000 to use as they wish to enhance their educational experience.
  • There is only one vote per person, so we need the entire community to participate.

There are many ways to encourage your community and U.S. Cellular recommends the following ways to get involved:

  • When the campaign launches, there will be a printable flyer on the U.S. Cellular website that can help you spread the word in your community.
  • Post information on your school’s website with a link to the U.S. Cellular website for updates.
  • Engage sports teams, the school band or student groups to help spread the word by handing out campaign flyers available on U.S. Cellular’s website.
  • Ask local businesses to share campaign flyers with their customers or hang flyers on their premises.
  • Even get the Principal involved for some fun incentives like a pie-throwing contests.

Several of the winning schools equipped their classrooms with new computers, updated campus buildings and remodeled gymnasiums, kitchens and science labs. A few of the winners even gave scholarships to graduating students while others donated a portion of their winnings to non-profits around the world.

Have you ever heard of the U.S. Cellular Calling All Communities Campaign? I know I would personally love to support the high school that both of my sons attend because school budgets are often tighter than we can imagine, which leads to many sacrifices, especially where the students are concerned. I hope you will visit your local U.S. Cellular branch to learn more about this amazing program and how it can help a school in your local community!
