U.S. Cellular’s Community Connections

What was contributed? The Laurel Bit and Bridle 4-H Club received $1,000 through U.S. Cellular’s Community Connections to assist with flood repairs at the Cedar County Fairgrounds in Hartington.

 
 When? May
 
 How did the contribution come about? The club signed up at www.uscellular.com/communityconnections, then rallied their friends, families and supporters to complete online activities that earned them the money. The Laurel Bit and Bridle 4-H Club received its check May 29 from U.S. Cellular representative Robin Pearson.
“These organizations provide valuable experiences for our local youth, and we are happy to support them through this program,” said Mike Adams, U.S. Cellular’s director of sales for Nebraska and Iowa. “It’s also great to see our fellow community members rally around this group to help them have a positive impact in Cedar County.”
Now in its fifth year, Community Connections provides sponsorship support to help youth groups pay for expenses, such as travel, equipment and uniforms. Since the program launched in 2015, U.S. Cellular has awarded more than $1.3 million to nearly 2,900 groups that include traveling sports teams, STEM programs, school marching bands and dance squads.
