People across the US are using wireless to keep connected. Here are their stories:

I recently became a volunteer for an organization who helps others emotionally and socially via phone communication. There are many elderly people and even younger people who now are out of work due to COVID and having a difficult time financially, and it’s also taking a huge emotional impact and affecting daily lives and function. Depression is creeping in for many. I am able to call from my cellular device and connect with someone who needs someone to talk to, a support person, new friend, one who needs resources, who may be all alone, etc. I talk with them and show much much I truly care and will go above and beyond to assist in any way possible. \n\nI truly love good people and realize we all need someone. And I want to be that someone for others. – Kimberly, North Carolina
