UScellular has announced a $30,000 investment in the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine to provide educational opportunities and experiences to local youth. UScellular’s investment supports K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and academic enrichment programs for members at the Club. This is part of a $1 million donation the company made to support 20 Boys & Girls Clubs across its service areas.

This continued emphasis on STEM learning and experience is designed to prepare students of today for careers of tomorrow, inspiring children to explore STEM careers and opportunities for their future.

“As America’s locally grown wireless carrier, supporting local educational initiatives like the Boys & Girls Clubs’ STEM programming is in UScellular’s DNA,” said Tabatha McKay, area vice president/general manager for UScellular in New England. “It is our goal that through new learning opportunities, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine’s members will dream big and apply what they learn towards their future careers.”

“We are thrilled to work with UScelluar once again to support STEM education for kids across the country,” said Jim Clark, president & CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “Now more than ever, kids need caring mentors and safe places where they can learn, grow and have fun. Through UScellular’s support, even more youth will experience new opportunities through impact-driven programming that will inspire and empower them to achieve great futures.”

UScellular associates didn’t let a pandemic stop them from donating their resources in 2020. The company’s associates took part in a variety of virtual volunteer activities, participating in more than 2,000 volunteer experiences to give back throughout the year. They also donated $250,000 to more than 500 organizations, which was then doubled by UScellular through its donation matching program.

UScellular has a longstanding commitment to supporting its local communities through donations and volunteerism. Since 2009, the company has donated more than $20.7 million along with countless experiences and technology items to nonprofit organizations across the country.
