Abrams, WI (October 28, 2019) –  Wisconsin Waterfowl Association has been selected as a 2019 Cellcom Green Gift recipient. The organization received a $2000 Green Gift from Cellcom to continue work on its Abrams property.

The Wisconsin Waterfowl Association (WWA) works to further restoration and conservation of the state’s waterfowl and wetland resources and implement education for Wisconsin youth that heightens awareness about these resources. The group continues work on its Abrams property, a 152-acre area that is open to the public for hunting and wildlife viewing and includes a number of accessible features for hunters with disabilities.

“The opportunity to have a large property open to the public, which features significant access for disabled veterans and other differently-abled persons, to use the property for a variety of pursuits – all within a short drive of a large metropolitan area, is very unique,” said Bruce Urben, board president of WWA. “The Green Gift will help us to continue to enhance the natural qualities, educational value, and handicapped-accessibility of this property, under the guidance of a professional habitat ecologist and with the support of local volunteers.”

Wisconsin Waterfowl Association was among 32 green organizations that received a share of the $37,398 in Green Gifts from Cellcom this year. The Green Gifts program uses funds generated from Cellcom’s cell phone recycling program to fund green nonprofit initiatives. Customers and community members 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’s Green Gift program completes the green cycle that starts with consumers being environmentally conscious and donating their devices.

“By simply recycling old devices our customers are partners in our Green Gifts program. Together we are investing in our communities and contributing to programs and projects that support sustainability and have a positive impact on the environment,” said Cindy Durand, director of public affairs at Cellcom.

Visit Cellcom’s website for the full list of award recipients. Cellcom is proud to support organizations of all sizes, whose work is impacting the community and building a greener tomorrow. The company’s recycling program has generated $384,373 for local charities over the past 16 years.
