Consumer Cellular employees got the shock of a lifetime when then reported to work this week.
Tiffany Smith, Redmond Contact Center Manager says the company hit a huge milestone; one million customers, and officials wanted to give "a million thanks."
"They’ve taken a million dollars, and they've split it. So $500,000 goes to our employees. So our employees didn't know anything about it. But today, when they came in they found that they're receiving a bonus to celebrate. Which is fantastic for them. And then as well, they have committed to giving $5000,000 to charities. We have 5 charities that they've selected, so that's fantastic as well."
Smith says she's planning on using her money to visit family in Florida and maybe go to Disney World.
The charities that will receive the gifts are: the Alzheimer’s Association, American Cancer Society, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels Association of America and Parkinson's Disease Foundation.
