Empire Today Participates In Cell Phones For Soldiers® Program


Northlake, Ill.—August 18, 2011— Empire Today®, a national leader in the installed home improvement and home furnishings industry, has donated over 170 used cell phones and over 400 accessory components to Cell Phones for Soldiers, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides pre-paid calling cards and free phone services to deployed and returning military members. According to Cell Phones for Soldiers, the average phone donation warrants roughly 60 minutes of talk time. Empire Today’s donation warrants roughly 10,200 minutes of talk time between military and their families.

“We are very excited to contribute to the Cell Phones for Soldiers program,” said Marlo M. Michalek, vice president of marketing communications for Empire Today. “Our contribution will support their overall initiative to provide military troops the communication tools needed to keep the soldiers in contact with their friends and family.”

“We are so thankful to organizations like Empire Today who take initiative to support our cause,” said Brittany Bergquist, co-founder of Cell Phones for Soldiers. “Without their support, we would not be able to meet the demand of troops in need of free calls home.”
