UScellular Visits Dubuque Organization with Donation
Company Spreads Locally Grown Joy to Support HACAP Dubuque County Outreach Center
DUBUQUE, Iowa (Dec. 2, 2021) – To celebrate the holiday season and the meaningful value of community, UScellular has made a donation to the HACAP Dubuque County Outreach Center. In order to bring locally-grown joy to eastern 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 $500 in gift cards for HACAP’s Adopt a Family program. These gifts are among more than 70 donations UScellular will make.
“Giving back to the people and organizations that make eastern Iowa an area we are proud to call home is what this season is all about,” UScellular East Iowa Director of Sales Josh Olbricht said. “Especially after last year, it is a true joy to celebrate and connect with the organizations that make our community special.”
HACAP is a community action agency that serves nine counties in eastern Iowa. HACAP embraces the philosophy of “a help up, not a handout” in its commitment to empower and improve the lives of families who live with the everyday barriers of poverty.
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.
