Aug 25, 2015
California-based Lease Advisors announces partnership with cell phone advocacy group in order to provide free talk time to members of the military. The deal, which will be extended to both active and veteran military and their families, is geared at keeping families in contact when communication matters most.
Lease Advisors, a premier land lease consultancy and acquisition firm officially announces its partnership with Cell Phones For Soldiers, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing cost-free communications services to active-duty military members and veterans. This partnership will provide active-duty military troops and veterans with pre-paid calling cards at no cost to them, allowing them to call home to speak with family members and loved ones.
Lease Advisors CEO, Jarred Saba, says of the partnership, “We created Lease Advisors Community to have a positive impact at the local level, by giving back to the communities where we conduct business. By partnering with Cell Phones For Soldiers, Lease Advisors is proud to be able to help our country’s servicemen and women stay connected with their loved ones.”
Lease Advisors Community will donate over 300,000 minutes of talk time to active-duty military personnel and veterans in or from the local areas where they complete lease purchase transactions.
Since its inception in 2004, Cell Phones For Soldiers has provided more than 216 million minutes of free talk time to servicemen and women stationed around the world through its calling card program, “Minutes That Matter.” Lease Advisors and Cell Phones For Soldiers now join together, in order to continue to provide this incredibly useful and much needed service for our troops.
“Leaving family behind during deployment is difficult and unimaginable for many of us. And then knowing that you are missing special moments, birthdays, “firsts” for your newborn and holidays is even harder. For some, the cost of calling home is insurmountable,” says Cell Phones For Soldiers co-founder, Robbie Bergquist. “So we’re honored to work with Lease Advisors and its clients to provide a lifeline for America’s bravest.”
This partnership with Cell Phones For Soldiers is important for Lease Advisors, as it furthers their long-standing commitment to make a positive impact in local communities. The initiative has been in place since the launch of the Lease Advisors Community philanthropic program in 2013.
“Our Community Program is an integral component to our corporate philosophy of giving back to individuals and communities in need.” said Mr. Saba.
