“We are pleased to work with a company that has a proven commitment to the environment and we are grateful for their pledge to support America’s national parks,” Kierman added.

As part of the campaign, Consumer Cellular will be donating $5 to the NPCA as and when a new and existing customer enrolls in its paperless billing program. The amount is expected to add up enabling Consumer Cellular to donate up to $150,000 to the NPCA.
