Stravers Cellular Store Manager Jordan Zantingh delivers toys recently for Crossroads of Pella children as part of UScellular’s Locally Grown Joy initiative.

PELLA — To celebrate the holiday season and the meaningful value of community, UScellular has donated items to the Crossroads of Pella.

In order to bring locally-grown joy to central Iowa, UScellular worked with its local team to learn about the needs of the community, then reached out to the Crossroads of Pella to obtain its ideal wish list.

Traveling in a holiday-themed truck, the company delivered toys for Crossroads of Pella children. These gifts are among more than 70 donations UScellular will make to help connect with its local communities and spread joy this holiday season.

“Giving back to the people and organizations that make central Iowa an area we are proud to call home is what this season is all about,” UScellular East Iowa Director of Sales Josh Olbricht said. “Especially after last year, it is a true joy to celebrate and connect with the organizations that make our community special.”

The Crossroads of Pella meets people where their need is and works with them to find a solution. The nonprofit organization continues to develop educational services and programs designed to meet the real and changing needs within the community.

Through UScellular’s Locally Grown Joy initiative, organizations from hospitals to local Boys & Girls Clubs will receive a little extra cheer. Gifts range from toys for children to food donations for local homeless shelters.

In addition to community gifts, UScellular has a sweepstakes where $10,000 will go to the winner and another $10,000 will go to the Science, Technology, Education and Math (STEM) program of the winner’s choice at
