Top-rated wireless carrier continues tradition of charitable giving

Consumer Cellular, the wireless provider ranked “#1 in Customer Service among Non-Contract Wireless Providers, 7 Times in a Row” by J.D. Power, is celebrating its 3.5 millionth customer by donating USD 350,000 to the American Red Cross through the Disaster Responder Program, the company said.

While natural disasters like hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and wildfires strike each year, the Red Cross responds to more than 62,000 disasters across the country. Generous contributions from Disaster Responder members, like Consumer Cellular, enable the Red Cross to provide disaster services to people in need of assistance at no cost and regardless of income.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation´s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
