US Cellular program supports youths

U.S. Cellular is continuing its "Community Connections" program to support more local youth organizations.

Over the last two years, the company has sponsored more than 1,400 school groups and youth sports teams through a collaboration with Pear, an online platform that connects local brands with local community needs.

For the back-to-school season, U.S. Cellular is extending the program and providing additional sponsorship opportunities for local youth organizations. Academic and athletic groups from kindergarten through 12th grade in New Hampshire can sign up at to apply for sponsorship from the company to go toward the needs of their group.

U.S. Cellular sponsors hundreds of local youth groups, school programs and sports teams, such as Little League teams, youth soccer clubs, school dance teams and bands. Once an interested group signs up at the website, it has 10 days to generate support from neighbors, friends, family and their community to earn points by completing simple tasks.
