St. Germain, WI (October 31, 2013) – The Northland Pines School District received an $800 Green Gift from Cellcom today at a presentation at St. Germain Elementary.

Northland Pines has implemented a Farm to School program for the 2013-14 school year. The Green Gift from Cellcom will be used to install a school garden at St. Germain Elementary.

“We are committed to changing children’s view of food and nutrition,” said Jasmyn Schmidt, nutrition educator for the program. “We hope that by teaching children where their food comes from and what goes into growing a carrot or making a pie, they will make healthier choices and live healthier lives.”

A total of $31,500 was given out to 12 green organizations in Cellcom’s service area.

Since 2004 Cellcom has offered a cell phone recycling program where customers can bring in their old or unwanted phones to be reused and recycled. Cellcom sends the phones to recyclers who in return send money to Cellcom for the materials that were saved from the phones. Cellcom has always donated this money back to local non-profits.

In 2010, Cellcom launched the Green Gift program, donating their recycling funds to green non-profit initiatives in an effort to complete the green cycle that starts with consumers being environmentally-conscious and donating their devices.

“This program has become the cornerstone of our green initiatives,” said Brighid Riordan, director of public affairs. “Cellcom is proud to support organizations of all sizes, whose work is impacting the community and building a greener tomorrow.”

Other green gifts went to non-profits throughout Cellcom’s service area and included Bookworm Gardens (Sheboygan), DC Everest School Forest (Schofield), Boys & Girls Club of Portage County (Stevens Point), Friends of Mead/McMillan Association (Milladore), Merrill River District Foundation (Merrill), Northland Pines School District (St. Germain), Friends of Hortonville Library (Hortonville), Woodland Dunes (Two Rivers), Open Door Bird Sanctuary (Sturgeon Bay), Camp Tekawitha (Shawano), Wisconsin Waterfowl Association (Abrams), and the Brown County Library (Green Bay).

Cellcom’s recycling program has generated over $163,000 for local charities over the past nine years.

Merrill, WI (October 31, 2013) – The Merrill River District Development Foundation received a $750 Green Gift from Cellcom today at a presentation near the future site of the River Bend Trail.

The River District Foundation was formed in 2011 and is currently focusing its energy on developing the western portion of a trail that would eventually run from Big Eddy Road, near the city of Merrill's east side to Council Grounds State Park. The foundation recently approved the name "The River Bend Trail”, and Cellcom’s Green Gift will support the continued development of the trail.

“The River Bend Trail will benefit all ages by improving accessibility to our beautiful rivers and preserving the natural beauty of these secluded areas,” said Judy Woller of the River District Foundation. “Once developed, the River Bend Trail will provide some new and unique opportunities, from walking and biking to fishing and nature observation and much, much more.”

A total of $31,500 was given out to 12 green organizations in Cellcom’s service area.
