Novi, MI (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
As the nation observes Veterans Day, ProtectCell is proud to donate to Cell Phones for Soldiers, one of the many employee-directed donations the company made this year. The donation is part of ProtectCell’s Mission 3-2-1, a philanthropic program making monetary donations to local and national charities with employees deciding where the money goes.
“We are honored to be associated with Cell Phones for Soldiers,” said Scott McLaren, President of ProtectCell. “It is humbling to know that in a small way we have helped service men and women to have the opportunity to communicate with loved ones.”
With Mission 3-2-1, three percent of the company’s revenue from reclaimed phones goes to national charities, as is the case for the donation to Cell Phones for Soldiers. Also, two percent of an individual’s annual work year (or 40 hours) is given to employees to invest in themselves and in their communities. Every ProtectCell employee is encouraged to take 20 hours of their work time each year to help at a non-profit, charity, or school, and an additional 20 hours a year to invest in their own personal development, whether that be a computer class or yoga sessions. Finally, each quarter, a pool of employees selects local charities to receive monetary donations.
“We really want to show our employees and the community that this is a company that understands about giving back,” explained McLaren. "Given our business, it is fitting that part of the revenue from reclaimed phones be used in this way. We recognize that for those serving this country, the ability to talk to friends or family can be a lifeline, far more impactful than we can really imagine. We are honored that our donation can help make that connection and we are proud of our team of employees who encouraged the donation to Cell Phones for Soldiers.”
This Veterans Day, ProtectCell encourages everyone to help make a difference in the life of a veteran. To learn more about how to donate to Cell Phones for Soldiers, visit http://www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com.
