Prep students are out in our communities making a difference every day; it is a part of their character, part of who they are. Recently, Yelfy Coffey, Mackenzie Mills and Ally Moore, all from the Class of 2018 were recognized for their efforts by U.S. Cellular in their Future of Good program.
A press release was issued today by U.S. Cellular announcing the selection of Dresses for Hope and Exchange for Change in U.S. Cellular’s 2017 The Future of Good program.
From the press release:
In support of Giving Tuesday, U.S. Cellular today announced that Dresses for Hope and Exchange for Change in the Tri-Cities have been selected for the company’s 2017 The Future of Good program. The wireless carrier contributed $1,000 to the two charities to assist high school students in low-income areas to affordably obtain a prom dress. This is part of a total of $42,000 consisting of in-kind and monetary contributions to help youth continue building The Future of Good.
Yelfy Coffey, Mackenzie Mills and Ally Moore were selected for this program by U.S. Cellular following a nationwide search, and they are featured on TheFutureOfGood.com to tell the unique story of how their cause is impacting the local community.
“Dresses can be expensive,” said Mackenzie Mills, “and we didn’t want anyone to miss attending prom because they couldn’t afford to buy a one.”
“Yelfy’s, Mackenzie’s and Ally’s passion and commitment to helping their fellow students is truly inspiring,” said Erryn Andersen, U.S. Cellular’s director of sales in the Northwest. “They are setting an incredible example for their peers and community, and we are in awe of the selfless acts of good they’re doing here in the Tri-Cities.”
Congratulations to Yelfy, Mackenzie and Ally!
