For more than 15 years, Wireless Estimator has been privileged to reach your computer screen or smartphone every day, providing information and advocacy to an industry that we are proud to serve. For that, we are thankful.
More importantly, we are thankful to those men and women who don’t look for thanks – our country’s volunteers, the spirited folks that genuinely make this industry great.
Unfortunately, trying to recognize every one of them and their organizations by name is not possible, but you know who they are.
They are the State Wireless Associations that have adopted a wide-ranging selection of worthy organizations to support every year. Carriers and towercos give generously as well. Individual companies also contribute in fund-raising and awareness efforts. And non-profits spring into action whenever there is a fatality or severe injury in order to assist families in need such as the Tower Family Foundation and the Hubble Foundation.
However, volunteerism doesn’t end there. Many co-workers champion efforts – frequently because of personal knowledge through family or friends – from women in distress, substance abuse, poverty and a host of other admirable church and civic services.
At dinner on Thanksgiving when you give thanks for the bounties provided to you, your family, friends, and associates, provide an extra one to all of the nation’s volunteers.
But better yet, if you’re not one, become one. The rewards are everlasting.
