US Cellular Provides Free Phone Calls on Thanksgiving

WILMINGTON -- For many of us, family is a big part of Thanksgiving, and one cell phone company made sure those who couldn't be together were connected.

From noon until 2:00 p.m. Friday, U.S. Cellular provided free phone calls so people could talk with friends and family around the country.

This is the fifth year the company has provided the service to the area's homeless and underprivileged.
