On April 10, Wells Fargo and its Alaska Veterans’ Team Member Network presented U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sergeant Kevin Call and U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major Bernie Knight with 650 60-minute calling cards for deployed JBER troops. 

 The calling cards are the result of a statewide Cell Phones for Soldiers drive conducted last November at all 49 Wells Fargo banking stores in Alaska. Wells Fargo customers and team members donated 750 cell phones that were recycled. Proceeds from the recycling are used to purchase the prepaid international calling cards. 

Cell Phones for Soldiers Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing cost-free communication services to active duty military members and veterans. Based in Norwell, Mass., Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded in 2004 by Robbie and Brittany Bergquist, then 12 and 13 years old. The organization has provided more than 168 million minutes of free talk time to deployed military members.
