On Friday, AT&T said donations received during the promotion will go toward United Way of Essex and West Hudson’s water fund, which uses 100 percent of proceeds to purchase bottled water for impacted residents of the Brick City.
Donations are one-time gifts and will be added to a customer’s monthly wireless bill, or deducted from a prepaid balance. The event is open to customers, 18 years of age and older, of AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular, the telecom company said.
“AT&T roots are in New Jersey, and we are committed to helping communities in need,” said Charlene Brown, president, AT&T New Jersey. “We also recognize the power of mobile technology and are using that to engage our employees and all New Jerseyans who want to help.”
