Community building and outreach = Making lives better by giving back.
At Leap and Cricket, we are focused on creating value for the communities we serve. For our customers, Cricket service is the lifeline to their world. That’s why we are so devoted to supporting the causes our employees and communities cherish. Our employees have spent thousands of hours of time volunteering in our communities from coast to coast. We have raised millions of dollars for charitable causes. We have connected people in lower-income communities with new opportunities through free broadband service pioneers.
Cricket Pride Nation
Each year our employees march in support of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community around the country. We participate in Pride events in a growing list of cities, including Baltimore, Chicago, Las Vegas, Oklahoma City, Phoenix and San Diego and in Texas, El Paso, Houston, McAllen and San Antonio. Leading the charge is Cricket Pride Nation, an internal resource group that welcomes all employees who support LGBT equality. It’s just one way we embrace diversity in our community and our workplace.
Project Change Access
To support Project Change Access, Cricket leveraged its collective power to change people’s lives by providing access to information – the great equalizer in our society. High-speed Internet access helps children complete homework, and enables their parents to apply for jobs online, get health care information and even take classes themselves. In support of this initiative, Cricket joined forces with a non-profit organization called One Economy to give free Cricket Broadband service to the people who need it most.
We encourage our employees to suggest new ways to contribute to the communities. Why? Because we think it’s the right thing to do. If you would like to invite our company to participate in a charitable cause, contact us here.
