To help provide equitable learning access and opportunities, as well as keep local youth connected during the school year, UScellular has donated 35 wireless hotspots and two years of service to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Cedar Valley and Boys & Girls Clubs of Lincoln/Lancaster County.
Lukas Partners coordinated October hotspots celebration events for our client UScellular in Davenport, Iowa; Waterloo, Iowa; and Lincoln.
Hotspots have proven to be a vital tool for youth to access the internet, study and complete homework. These will help the Boys & Girls Clubs boost their connectivity on site, while also being loaned out to families to support reliable access at home.
The hotspots provided to the Boys & Girls Clubs connect to UScellular’s network to provide high-speed connectivity for Club members throughout the area. Each hotspot has the potential to support multiple Club members throughout any given day.
UScellular has donated $2.6 million in hotspots and wireless service to 33 Boys & Girls Clubs in 2021. Earlier this year, Lukas Partners coordinated hotspots celebration events in Omaha, as well as Dubuque, Des Moines and Cedar Rapids in Iowa.
