Cricket Wireless, along with our Authorized Retailers (ARs), have been working to give our local communities something to smile about.

We teamed with Unidos Por La Musica, a non-profit based in southern California that seeks to help low-income communities through the power of music, to support their “Bags of Hope” food drive event in Moreno Valley, CA.

February’s disastrous winter storm left thousands of residents across Shreveport, LA without running water. Cricket, along with our ARs Crown and Mobile Link, encouraged families in need to stop by one of four participating Cricket Wireless stores to pick up a case of bottled water.

The massive snow storm also left families in Perry County, KY without power. Cricket District Manager Eric Smith opened his store to those affected, offering them Internet connectivity, cups of hot chocolate and coffee, as well as a safe place to stay warm until their power was restored.

These are just a few of the activities Cricket participated in last quarter to support our local communities. Stay tuned for our next Smiles for Miles update.
