Calling all Teachers Campaign Kicks Off

U.S. Cellular is giving $1 million to help teachers erase classroom needs with the return of the company’s Calling All Teachers campaign. The pinch of budget cuts has compelled many teachers to supplement shortfalls by purchasing basic supplies like crayons, textbooks and calculators with personal resources. Starting Aug. 1 through Sept. 15, Washington teachers can post their funding requests to www.DonorsChoose.org, and U.S. Cellular will fund projects in September and October. Last year, U.S. Cellular funded 51 projects in Washington valued at nearly $26,000 that impacted more than 3,600 students.
