Consumer Cellular Gives Back to Fight Hunger

written by Isaac Peterson

Portland-based company Consumer Cellular is giving back by volunteering with the Oregon Food Bank. The company has garnered awards for their excellent customer service, and in order to celebrate the benchmark of 2.5 million customers, they decided to give 2.5 million meals to families and seniors in need. Feeding America, the organization structuring the donation, is able to provide eleven meals for the cost of one dollar.

To celebrate the donation, Consumer Cellular employees came together this week to volunteer at the Oregon Food Bank. The company’s employees in Phoenix, Arizona and Redmond, Oregon also spent time volunteering with their local food banks. For more than 10 years the company has volunteered together quarterly, donating more than 2,500 hours.

“On behalf of our employees and 2.5 million customers, we are thrilled to share our support with Feeding America,” said John Marick, CEO of Consumer Cellular. “Hunger is something that affects one in 11 seniors, some of whom are likely our customers. We hope this donation will not only provide meals, but also raise awareness for the important issue of solving senior hunger.”

“Every meal makes a difference to someone struggling with hunger, and Consumer Cellular’s donation of more than 2.5 million meals will make a significant impact for families and seniors,” says Nancy Curby, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships and Operations at Feeding America. “This is an issue we can solve, and together with partners like Consumer Cellular, we move closer to realizing that reality.”
